We want a neighborhood-based online community forum in Vollintine Evergreen, Memphis.

"I believe online communities are starting to play a crucial role in the ways people from the same neighborhood connect. Online communities can help connect citizens online and in person to share goods, knowledge, time and spaces. Good examples of this new kind of online community are collaborative consumption sites, barter and time banks and crowdsourcing sites. Here we are not only sharing images, videos and documents, but we can share knowledge, time resources and spaces in different ways—like giving away, lending, renting, selling, sharing or swapping.

Efficiency will be the new mantra. In the next years we’ll see how things that may currently be considered ‘alternative’ will become a natural way to organize, because they will help us to improve our quality of life." -betterymagazine.com/ideas/onli...

Next Door is working great for V-E. I'd say it is addressing the needs expressed here.

We love our Next Door in Cooper-Young. It really gained momentum quickly.

What about a Google group? They seem easy enough to get started. I'd be glad to help set one up if you run into any trouble with it.

This is a great idea! I live in Volintine Evergreen and I can see this helping in so many ways. While our street (Evergreen between Tutwiler and Jackson) is very safe we had some breakins over the holidays. This would have been a great way to tell everyone to keep their eyes open!!
