Nextdoor is a free and private social networking website for neighborhoods that can be a valuable tool to make our neighborhood safer and stronger. The site also has the full support of the Asheville Police Department. To learn more , visit www.nextdoor.com. There’s also an online video and a downloadable smart app for phone. Your GPSMNA membership does not automatically sign you up for Nextdoor; you must visit the website and join. Nextdoor does NOT replace reporting a crime or suspicious activity to the police. However, here’s how it can help our neighborhood:
• Quickly spread the word about crime and suspicious activity as well as receive citywide updates.
Find trustworthy local resources, such as babysitters, plumbers and dentists
• Get assistance to find lost pets
• Organize neighborhood events, such as garage sales and block parties
• Help find missing packages
• Promote items for sale/free and inquire about items for purchase.
Check out the photos under the Park Restoration link above. Thanks to all the volunteers that gave so generously of their time. Stay posted for future updates.
