Nextdoor.com is a great resource for communities

Nextdoor.com has been a great network for me when it comes to reaching out to my neighbors. Give it a try with your neighborhood. You will be glad you did.


Nextdoor is the private social network for you, your neighbors and your community. It's the easiest way for you and your neighbors to talk online and make all of your lives better in the real world. And it's free.

Thousands of neighborhoods are already using Nextdoor to build happier, safer places to call home.

People are using Nextdoor to:

  • Quickly get the word out about a break-in
  • Organize a Neighborhood Watch Group
  • Track down a trustworthy babysitter
  • Find out who does the best paint job in town
  • Ask for help keeping an eye out for a lost dog
  • Find a new home for an outgrown bike
  • Finally call that nice man down the street by his first name

Avoid Gas Pipeline Damage & Injuries

Before you begin landscaping, remodeling, planting or any other digging in your yard it is important to locate pipelines around your property (under streets, sidewalks and  private property)

Whether you are planning to add on to your home or are just doing some landscaping in your yard, protect your safety and the safety of those around you by calling UNDERGROUND SERVICE ALERT at 811 at least 2 business days prior to digging/excavating.  This service will coordinate with Souther California Gas Company and other utility owners in the area to mark the locations of buried utility-owned lines.
