Nextdoor allows communities to easily create private websites to facilitate communication among neighbors and build stronger neighborhoods. Nextdoor was created based on the idea that the neighborhood is one of the most important and useful communities in a person's life. Nextdoor's mission is to use technology to help neighbors build stronger and safer neighborhoods.
What does the Nextdoor site offer?
On Nextdoor, members can:
Share local recommendations (plumbers, auto mechanics, babysitters, etc.)
Sell or give away household items.
Publicize local events.
Exchange information about crime and safety issues.
Find neighbors in the directory.
View a neighborhood map.
Ask for advice.
Create public or private groups for neighbors who share the same interests.
Residents can choose to view and respond to updates via email or directly on the website. You control what information you receive.
What is the difference between this site (ChristmasMountainGolfEstates.com) and the Nextdoor site?
- ChristmasMountainGolfEstates.com - This the official communication channel for Christmas Mountain Golf Estates. All residents are highly encouraged to register for this site with a current valid email address so they are informed of important news and information related to the Golf Estates.
This site provides a structured reference and resource for CMGE residents, potential buyers, and anyone interested in the CMGE neighborhood. Only the web administrators may post updates to this site.
ChristmasMountainGolfEstates.com was launched by CMGE resident Bob Schick and for several years was operated by Bob at his own expense to provide a resource for the CMGE community. In 2017 the Christmas Mountain HOA board took over responsibility for paying for and operating the site and Bob continues to be involved as an administrator and contributor.
- Nextdoor Neighborhood Site - The Nextdoor site provides an opportunity for neighbors to communicate directly with other neighbors. You must have an address within the boundaries of CMGE to join the Nextdoor neighborhood. Anyone who joins may post to the site to share suggestions, ask for advice or recommendations, and coordinate neighborhood activities.
All residents may contribute without going through a site administrator.
Why do we have to register for two different web sites?
Each site has its own strengths and each provides value for the CMGE community, but unfortunately they operate on completely different platforms and have separate sign-ins.
What about Facebook? Why don't we use that for a social site?
Christmas Mountain Golf Estates does have a Facebook page. Residents who use Facebook communicate there as well, but Nextdoor was selected as the recommended site for neighbors to connect because it was designed and built specifically for that purpose and has neighborhood features that Facebook doesn't provide.
