Los Angeles is the second largest city in the U.S. and communicating important information quickly to its four million residents can be a challenge. That’s why, yesterday, the City of Los Angeles, led by Mayor Eric Garcetti’s Office and the Department of Neighborhood Empowerment, announced a partnership with Nextdoor to help improve neighbor-to-neighbor and citywide communications.
Our mission at Nextdoor is to use the power of technology to help build stronger and safer neighborhoods. The Mayor’s pledge to bring City Hall back-to-basics, which means listening to residents and working with them to solve problems within their neighborhoods, aligns well with our mission. More than 700 Los Angeles neighborhoods, representing 87% of the neighborhoods in the City, have already joined Nextdoor to share information, including neighborhood public safety issues, community events and activities, local services, and even lost pets.
The City of Los Angeles joins New York, Houston, Dallas, San Diego, and nearly 130 other cities across the country that are using Nextdoor to communicate directly with residents.
We are proud to be working with Mayor Garcetti and the Department of Neighborhood Empowerment to combine the spirit of neighborly interaction with the reality of online communication by connecting the City and its other departments with residents about the things that matter most.
