Vallejo Touts Itself On Web

If you're a Vallejophile, the Chamber of Commerce's spiffy new Web site makes a great computer home page, the chamber president said Thursday.
About three years in the making, www.vallejochamber.com has been launched with a new look and several unique features, President Rick Wells said. It includes hundreds of links to local businesses, partners, photographs and other Vallejo-related information.
"One of the most important features is our community calendar, and the ability of anyone to submit an event for publication in the calendar," Wells said. Submissions are reviewed and approved before being posted, he said.
"It's the only place in Vallejo, that I'm aware of, where people can post community events online 24 hours per day," he said.
The site includes a wide array of Vallejo-related information and photos, according to Wells.
"There's lots of demographic information for potential residents and businesses, and we plan to make it an e-commerce site," he added.
Ducky Derby race tickets will soon be available for purchase on the site. The annual waterfront event raises money to buy dictionaries for third-graders.
After that, maps, relocation packets and workplace compliance material, like labor law posters, will be posted, Wells said.
The chamber's new Web site was a group effort, led primarily by its graphics designer Jennifer Klimisch, Wells said. It was designed to be consistent with the chamber's other promotional material.
"It's meant to capture the waterfront lifestyle and location, the city's rich history and the opportunities Vallejo has to offer," Wells said.
"It's a work in progress, and we're hearing feedback and making adjustments every day," Wells said.
At least one recent user is impressed.
"I think it's wonderful," said Leah Dreger of Callahan De Silva Vallejo, LLC, the city's waterfront developer. "I scrolled through it and poked all the buttons and found that it was very informative. It's all inclusive, so someone that goes there will see the chamber is promoting not just itself, but all of Vallejo."
