Hunters Green Cluster Association – Nextdoor.com Online Community

https://huntersgreencluster.nextdoor.com

Hunters Green Cluster Association utilizes Nextdoor.com to connect with neighbors online.  The boundaries are set so only those with a physical address in our neighborhood can join our group, which you can validate with a 1 cent credit card charge, social security number lookup, phone call, or have a postcard sent to your address.  This way you know you are only communicating with your neighborhood.  

To help get you started, we’ve created an FAQ specifically for Hunters Green residents. 

FAQ:

Do I have to join Nextdoor to receive neighborhood updates from the Board?

No.  Nextdoor.com is completely optional and will not be used for official cluster business.  The Board communicates directly with residents via flyers and community-email notifications.   Nextdoor.com is where you can connect directly with your neighbors for things like a babysitter recommendation, joining a neighborhood walking club, or share something with your community.  

Where can I find more about how Nextdoor works?

We won’t duplicate their work, so please see Nextdoor’s FAQ for information about the service in general.
