We added a few new features here on My Ballard over the weekend, which you can visit via the navigation at the top of the page:
Events: We’ve added a new, enhanced events calendar that allows you to submit events directly, instead of sending us an email. (Please only submit Ballard community events — we will not approve events that are strictly commercial). You can also set up events alerts, forward events to friends, add events to your personal calendar and all kinds of good stuff.
Cameras: The Seattle Department of Transportation recently rolled out a bunch of new traffic cameras in Ballard and surrounding neighborhoods, and we’ve added them to our traffic cameras page.
Data: Powered by EveryBlock.com, the data page updates you on Ballard 911 dispatches, restaurant inspections, liquor licenses and building permits, to name a few. (Disclosure: Cory works for msnbc.com which owns EveryBlock.com).
Newsletter: We recently launched a weekly newsletter with information about community events here in Ballard and in nearby North Seattle neighborhoods. We will soon highlight deals, as well.
