Nextdoor: A Private Neighborhood Social Network
This is an unabashed plug for Nextdoor which if you haven't joined yet you really should. It is a very useful site for keeping up with what's going on, get referrals for just about anything, and network with your neighbors.
The is organized by sub-neighborhood and North Redondo Beach is further broken down much further than the MLS Areas.
There is a classified section and other than that it is free of advertising, at least for now and I haven't seen any of the extreme language or points of view you find elsewhere.
Needless to say you can also get the app for your phone.
Here's how they position themselves.
"Nextdoor is the best way to stay in the know about what’s going on in your neighborhood—whether it’s finding a last-minute babysitter, learning about an upcoming block party, or hearing about a rash of car break-ins. There are so many ways our neighbors can help us, we just need an easier way to connect with them."
North Redondo Beach Greenbelt
Here's an example from Nextdoor of an issue near and dear to my heart: improving the Greenbelt that runs under the power lines. Yeah, there are power lines but it could be made much nicer.
Here is an opportunity to meet each other and to meet Bill Brand who is running for Mayor. Being informed about all the candidates is something we can all strive for when deciding who to vote for during the next election.
This Wednesday, Jan. 18th, 7-9pm at the Great Room.
Here is a message from Bill Brand who is running for Mayor.
We all know North Redondo has largely been ignored in the last few years and that needs to change. I’m having a community meeting in North Redondo on Wednesday, 7-9 pm, at a new coffee shop called The Great Room at 2810 Artesia Blvd. - just south of the Galleria. Bring your gripes and ideas about the Greenbelt, Artesia Blvd., the Galleria and whatever else concerns you. I’ll answer all your questions and help you walk your way through the City processes to get the help you need. The City has money, so that is no excuse.
Paid for by Brand for Mayor - 2017"
Well of the City has the money, let's make something happen!
