The City of Fremont, along with Fremont Police Department, Fire Department, and Office of Emergency Services (OES), are excited to join Nextdoor.com, the free neighborhood social network, to help strengthen citywide communications. Beginning mid-October, the agencies will use Nextdoor to post information to residents within the city, such as important news, services, programs, free events, and emergency notifications. Fremont residents are encouraged to sign up for Nextdoor in anticipation of their launch.
With Nextdoor, residents can create and join private neighborhood websites to share information with each other, including public safety issues, community events, local services and recommendations, and for sale and free items. Each neighborhood self-manages its own private website, accessible only to residents of that neighborhood. City departments will not be able to access residents’ websites, contact information, or content. All members must verify that they live within the neighborhood before joining Nextdoor. Information shared on Nextdoor is password protected and cannot be accessed by Google or other search engines.
Those interested in joining their neighborhood’s Nextdoor website can visit their website and enter their address. If residents have questions about their Nextdoor website, please visit their Help website.
