The new eNeighbors is available for most users as of 9am CDT on 9/5/13.
Unfortunately, we experienced some trouble during the upgrade with our DNS servers, which may delay access to the new website for up to 24 hours for some users. We are waiting until DNS has completely updated before sending an email to users that the new site is ready for use.
To get access immediately, please follow the steps provided on our support site at http://bit.ly/1fCb2AA. Otherwise, please check back tomorrow.
Thank you for your patience as we continue to work through some bugs.
The update is planned to begin at 1pm CDT. Status updates will be posted at https://twitter.com/eNeighbors.
eNeighbors is updating your community website and will launch tomorrow, September 4th, 2013. The new eNeighbors is being re-built from the ground up to create a simpler, more useful, and more enjoyable experience for residents. A preview of the new look is below.

I will be presenting at Curry Association Management’s Annual Meeting for their clients.
The meeting is on Monday, May 9th at 6pm at the Holiday Inn on the Country Club Plaza in Kansas City.
I have a short 10 minute presentation prepared where I’ll provide a quick overview of our services and some tips for generating participation on your neighborhood website. You can also meet with me after the presentation and I can answer any questions that you have in person!
If your HOA is managed by Curry, please be sure to attend, I would love the chance to meet with you.
If that’s not enough, we’re also giving away some gift certificates to Jack Stack BBQ to a few lucky winners.
YES! Google will build an ultra high-speed broadband network in Kansas City, Kansas. According to their FAQs, construction will begin at the end of 2011 and service may be available to some residents as early as the first quarter of 2012.
They received applications from 1,100 communities across the US, including a number of nominations from our own neighborhoods in KC.
Last June (2010) we launched a new money saving program for our Kansas City neighborhoods called eDeals. Through eDeals, neighbors agree to buy products and services in bulk allowing us to secure discounts from local merchants.
Since the beginning our goal has been to help residents save money on products and services, while at the same time, helping local merchants thrive.
I’m happy to report that we’ve already saved homeowners $188,101 and helped to generate $100,271 in revenue for local businesses.
To date, we’ve run 30 deals from local merchants such as:
- Sprinkler Blowout
- Lawn Fertilization
- Window Cleaning
- Furnace Tune-Up
- Dry Cleaning
- Tree Trimming
If you’re a Kansas City merchant interested in offering an eDeal to our neighborhoods, please visit http://www.eneighbors.com/edeals/.
