The City of West Hollywood is beginning the process of redesigning its municipal website, www.weho.org and the City is engaging with community members to help inform important considerations about the website. The City’s Communications Department has launched a short online survey to gather feedback from residents, businesses, and others to help guide the design of the new website to most effectively meet a wide range of needs. The three-minute survey is available online here.
The City of West Hollywood is a highly digitally connected community and digital communications tools, such as the City’s website and social media, are vital conduits for news and information that connect community members with West Hollywood City Hall.
The City’s website, www.weho.org, receives an average of 160,000 page views each month. The website was last redesigned in 2010; a new redesign scheduled to be launched in mid 2018 will help the City to incorporate new website technologies and design principles so that visitors can quickly and easily access information and resources. The website redesign will also take into consideration the requirements of mobile users, which account for approximately 40 percent of visitors to the City’s website.
The City of West Hollywood’s website and social media efforts are leading the way among local governments. The current versions of the City’s “desktop” website and “mobile” website have won multiple prestigious awards, including a top award for outstanding website design and development from the National Association of Government Web Professionals (NAGW), a national organization of local and state government web professionals working together to share knowledge, best practices, innovative ideas, and other resources.
