There is a free social website called Nextdoor that many Bellingham neighborhoods are using to enhance communications between neighbors.  It’s a great way to share information about local concerns (e.g., car prowls), lost pets, etc.  Our neighborhood police officers use Next Door to post alerts, answer questions, and receive non-emergency messages.  Read more about Nextdoor here.
