Neighborhood Crimebusters – Schedule Events

[This post is part of a series for the article: Neighborhood Crimebusters’ Web Based Community. Previous post in the series: Know Thy Neighbors.]

The rest of this article describes how you could set up a Yahoo Group as a web portal for your neighborhood. Please note you could also use other such applications like Google or MSN groups and set up something very similar. This example is based on a real neighborhood portal that was set up using Yahoo Groups. This is intended to illustrate one possible way of using such an application to facilitate communication between people in a neighborhood. Depending on the needs of your NCW and other constraints that you may have, you may need to choose another way to implement this.

Calendar Application
The Calendar is probably the least used of the group features, but it is quite handy. If you have a forthcoming neighborhood group meeting, or may be a meeting with the representatives of your city NCW administration, you can send out an email announcement, and also mark the group Calendar. The Calendar event can be set up to send out automatic reminders to the group at selected intervals.

If your neighborhood group has any regularly occurring events, for example, bulk garbage pickup on the first Friday of every third month, then the group calendar feature can be useful to send out email reminders may be 1 week, 3 days and 1 day in advance.
