The City of Chestermere is pleased to introduce a newly redesigned City website that is clean, simple and easy to navigate.
“Providing great service to residents is a top priority and we wanted our website redesign to reflect that,” said Tracy Buteau, Director of Corporate Services. “I’m very proud of the final product and am confident it will greatly improve the experience of our website visitors.”
Some of the new features and changes to the site include a service based page structure, large search bar, consistent landing pages, removal of redundant information, and social media updates on the homepage.
The changes were the result of a six month re-design process by City of Chestermere staff and CivicPlus, a leading government website provider. Having been a client for four years, the City received the redesign at no additional cost.
Along with the clean and modern look, the City purchased a new feature to allow the site to be mobile responsive, allowing residents to access City information more easily from their phones or tablets. The City of Chestermere is also planning to use the features of the new site to increase its community engagement and enhance communication between residents and stakeholders.
“We are very pleased to offer an updated website experience,” said Katie Lamanna, the City’s website redesign project manager. “We know people are busy and are looking for information quickly, so we worked hard to create a website that is easy to use, reflects what residents seek, and provides a more interactive experience.”
The launch also includes a new Economic Development micro site www.investchestermere.ca. This website aims to provide information for companies looking to expand or open new businesses in the City, as well as information for current local businesses.
“Part of our Economic Development Strategy is assertive marketing,” said Jean-Marc Lacasse, Economic Development Manager for the City of Chestermere. “This brand new site profiles our community and potential for success and we are pleased to offer it to potential investors as a resource.”
Both websites are now live and residents are encouraged to view them at www.chestermere.ca and www.investchestermere.ca and provide feedback using the online form found on the homepage.
