The site is called Nextdoor and is a place where communication can occur within neighborhoods around the city. Residents can connect with each other on anything from lost dogs and break-ins to neighborhood social events.
City officials say more than 20 neighborhoods within Peoria are established on the Nextdoor site. Anyone wishing to join has to verify their address, so they can be placed within the correct neighborhood.A link to a video describing Nextdoor is also available.
