Ballard Post Office may not renew lease

Posted by Geeky Swedes on October 23rd, 2008

The U.S. post office at NW 57th & 17th Ave. may not renew its lease.

The post office for the 98107 zip code has been in its current location for the past couple of decades, but is considering moving. Employees tell us that the new location for the post office will be at the carrier annex near Fred Meyer in six to nine months. (Thanks Kim for the tip!)

Update: Ernie Swanson, public information officer for the post office, says the lease on the property is up for renewal the beginning of next year. He said they’re considering several options before making a decision whether to sign a new lease, including moving to the carrier annex near Fred Meyer. The post office is not being “forced” to move, as several employees had told us earlier.

    Hi! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
    I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had
    issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.

    I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a
    good platform.

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
