- user-centered and service-driven;
- intuitive and easy to use;
- more efficient for staff to update;
- modern and visually engaging; and
- built on user research and iteratively improved based on user research.
“The website is one of our most important tools for delivering information and services to our community, and this public health crisis has only accelerated our efforts to embrace new ways to serve the public online. The new website is designed to be faster and easier for the public to use, making doing business with the city more efficient.”- Former City Manager, Jane Brautigam
Community members are encouraged to provide feedback on the beta on the city’s online engagement platform, Be Heard Boulder, and/or feedback forms on the beta website itself. Feedback from the public will help shape the development of the website, including ongoing improvements.
The city’s current website was launched in 2013. The city website receives approximately 1.5 million visitors and 7 million pageviews a year on average.
