Brookline Launches Real-Time Newsfeed & Community Engagement App


The Brookline Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Community Relations and the Town Administrator are excited to announce the launch of Inhabit, Brookline’s real-time newsfeed and community hub app, now making it easier than ever for the town’s diverse community of residents, small businesses, nonprofits and government departments to connect, share and engage — all in one place.

Inhabit delivers a new kind of Brookline experience – a community portal designed with residents at the center. The app is pre-customized to each resident by neighborhood and precinct, and enables those who join to further personalize their community by browsing neighborhoods and adding additional local businesses and organizations they love. The platform is town-specific, meaning no clutter, no algorithms and no promoted ads – just Brookline.

Inhabit will serve as the heart of Brookline’s local information network, empowering residents to access real-time news, events, and important updates in an intuitive and user-friendly interface. With this app, Brookline is taking a step forward in enhancing community connectivity and engagement and ensuring that every Brookline resident has the tools to be as informed, engaged and connected as their neighbor.

Town Administrator Chas Carey expresses excitement about this new resource, stating, “Inhabit represents a strong step toward fostering a more interconnected and informed community in Brookline. Our town has always thrived on the strength of its people, and this platform serves as a powerful tool to further enhance our bonds, share information, and collectively contribute to the growth of our wonderful town.”

To access Inhabit, simply download the app from the App Store or Google Play to start enjoying a personalized experience of the Town.
