COLUMBUS – Angie’s List, the online website giant that allows millions of consumers to post reviews, now helping neighborhoods to fight back.
The website, which started here in Columbus, has created a new tool for neighbors to share safety tips and community happenings.
“It’s only open to you neighbors,” said Angie Hicks, “we will confirm if they live in your neighborhood before we invite them in.”
Each neighborhood will have its own closed forum page, where neighbors can inform each other about garage sales, block parties, and crime.
“This is a great way for neighbors to get the heads up to each other about things, the good, the bad, and the ugly,” said member Mark Quinlan.
Columbus is one of four cities where “Band Of Neighbors” is being rolled out first. The others are Indianapolis, San Francisco, and Washington D.C.
