neighborhood communication

The 12th Annual Cincinnati Neighborhood Summit, presented by Invest in Neighborhoods, takes place on Saturday, February 22 at Xavier University's Cintas Center and features many workshops and presentations designed to help community leaders and volunteers improve their neighborhoods and to make them healthier, more attractive and vibrant.

The Summit has enlisted the help of experts and professionals to teach participants some best practices. The sessions are intended for individuals fairly new to neighborhood activity as well as for those who have more experience.

Cincinnati officials will be discussing a new plan Wednesday morning that will use technology to better communicate with residents in the city's 52 neighborhoods.  

The city is partnering with Nextdoor.  

The website has been operating since October 2011 and has about 16,000 neighborhoods represented nationwide.

Communications Director Kelsey Grady said Nextdoor is a private social network that allows neighbors to connect.
