Neighborhood Watch

We have an active Neighborhood Watch that communicates via email and text. If you would like to join the conversation, send and email with your information to one of our two moderators, Phil and Tom.

Also, a newer resource being used city-wide is Nextdoor is billed as a private social network for you, your neighbors and your community. When you sign up (with your real name and your real address) the site automatically knows you live in the Mt. Washington Jessica neighborhood.

Mail Theft
