Community Portal Websites

A community portal is a website dedicated to a specific neighborhood, with news, a calendar of local events, a directory, photos, videos and more. Moderated by a portal manager who maintains a lively, broad mix of local content, each portal is a place for residents to both learn the latest about their community and to tell their stories to the world.


Community portals are different from the websites of traditional neighborhood nonprofits because they cover a wide set of topics from many points of view. It’s like a community newspaper, bulletin board and phonebook—all in one place, created by the residents themselves.


An engaging portal provides powerful features that can be modified for the needs of the community. Each includes:

  • News that covers everything from an art gallery opening to homeowner tax credits, including first-person opinion, slide shows, videos and more.
  • Directories that give businesses, social service agencies, schools and other institutions an online presence. A listing can include photos, video, a map, hours of operation, a menu—anything to help a reader learn more.
  • Events and listings on a calendar of what’s going on in the community.
  • Other information that the local community has deemed important—job listings, video profiles, a virtual neighborhood tour, news from the alderman’s office, technology tips, etc.
