is a free online private social network that aims to build stronger and safer neighborhoods around the world. Hundreds of neighborhoods are already using Nextdoor to build happier, safer places to call home.

“I was recently introduced to this neat and useful free resource and think it’s something more people should know about,” notes Santa Barbara Village Executive Director, Naomi Kovacs. “It makes sense for Santa Barbara Village to inform our community members about it because both and Santa Barbara Village are about building and supporting community.”

Nextdoor’s mission is to bring back a sense of community to the neighborhood, one of the most important communities in each of our lives.

Nina Johnson, Assistant to the Santa Barbara City Administrator, will explain more about this free online resource for your neighborhood right here in the Santa Barbara area.

Very limited parking will be available on site for this event, though street parking should be available and four City Parking Lots are conveniently located within 2-3 blocks: Paseo Nuevo Mall (Chapala), Lot 10 (Ortega Garage), Lot 11 (at Haley & Anacapa), and Lot 12 (at State & Gutierrez).
