DENVER, CO - August 15, 2003 - Wilmington’s mayor, city council and the New Castle County’s Council teamed up with Neighborhood Link to offer Wilmington and New Castle County neighborhoods and community-based organizations free Web sites. -

New Castle County Council President Christopher Coons announced the launch of Neighborhood Link in Wilmington and New Castle County. Neighborhood Link, (, the Internet-based community network that enables neighborhoods and community organizations in participating metropolitan areas to create their own free, interactive Web sites today welcomed the city of Wilmington and all municipalities in the greater Wilmington metro area to their online community. The addition of Wilmington and New Castle County’s 600-plus new online neighborhoods brings the total number of Neighborhood Link cities deployed to 50 since launching in October 1998 and the total of neighborhoods online to nearly 35,000.

“Neighborhood Link will allow local governments to maintain complete lists of all neighborhood associations in the Wilmington metro area, which makes it easier for the government to communicate with neighborhoods and for neighborhoods to communicate with each other,” said Neighborhood Link President Ted Pinkowitz.

Neighborhood Link is offering a unique service on the Web by bringing people together within a neighborhood and offering them a chance to build a stronger sense of community and a closer link to the local civic community. By offering its users the ability to set up their own free neighborhood Web sites, Neighborhood Link has become the first Internet company to offer civic communication between citizens and the local government.

“We currently host more nearly 35,000 neighborhoods across the country and are helping these visitors to build stronger communities within each city by serving as their primary resource for civic communication,” said Ted Pinkowitz, president and CEO of Neighborhood Link. Neighborhood Link becomes fully integrated into participating communities through community partnerships with local governments, neighborhood groups and community organizations such as public schools, police departments and community newspapers. Each neighborhood Web site provides useful information such as event and meeting schedules, important notices, the association’s newsletter, local school listings, connections to police departments, community newspapers, interactive maps, additional pages for special-interest groups, interactive discussion areas and much more.
