Neighborly Reports to Better Your Block

Want to start a community project aimed at local government transparency and bettering your block? EveryBlock , a site that culls ultralocal news about specific neighborhoods, has combined its powers with SeeClickFix , a reporting tool site that that allows anyone to report and track community problems that need a little local government love.

By linking up, the sites hope to provide readers with better local news and a convenient way to find out about the shady, non-emergency civic issues spotted in their neighborhoods. (Think: potholes, gang graffiti, speedster school buses, or poor quality drinking water.)
