officially launches: Check out the new site!

The new White Center Chamber of Commerce website is officially launched! Here’s the formal announcement just out of the WCN inbox:

Today, the White Center Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce the official launch of a new website – – that highlights approximately 240 businesses and various organizations in the White Center neighborhood, and serves as a community resource with an events calendar and news feeds from local media sources.

“The website design is fabulous and the decision to include all businesses and organizations in White Center is the Chamber’s way of saying thank you for making this neighborhood a unique and fun place to be,” said Mark Ufkes, President of the White Center Chamber of Commerce. “The Chamber is here to help our local economy grow and promoting our businesses through this website does just that.”

The main feature on the website, the business directory, is divided up into five categories: eat, shop, play, services, and organizations. Each business has its own pop-up page that displays pertinent information such as the business name, address, hours, location (via Google Maps) and languages spoken. If applicable, there are links to social media sites such as Facebook and Yelp, and to a business’ website. The capability to translate the entire website into 10 different languages is available as well.

“The website looks and feels great. I am excited to be a part of this project in collaboration with the White Center Chamber of Commerce and Noise Without Sound,” said Sili Savusa, Executive Director of the White Center Community Development Association. “The impact of this website is more than just marketing and promotion of our business district, but it is about the power of collaboration and shared vision of our community.”

In 2012, the White Center Community Development Association and the White Center Chamber of Commerce collaborated on a grant application to the City of Seattle’s Office of Economic Development’s Only in Seattle program for the website. Kathi “George” Wheeler, owner of Noise Without Sound, was contracted to develop and design the website. “White Center is my home and developing a website that incorporates everyone in the community was the direction I wanted to go,” said George.
