City Invites Community to Aug. 9 Open House Focused on Website Improvement
Event part of an ongoing to effort to update the city site based on user needs and feedback
The City of Boulder is working to improve its external website, bouldercolorado.gov , and requests feedback that will help the site better serve the needs of the community.
As part of this project, the city is hosting a Website Improvement Project Open House on Aug. 9, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Brenton Building (1136 Alpine Ave.). Parking is free and available in the lot on the south side of the building. At the event, community members will have an opportunity to learn more about the project, speak with staff and participate in user testing.
Community members may also provide feedback on Be Heard Boulder , the city's digital engagement platform.
The website is the City of Boulder's primary platform for sharing information with the community. The current city website was launched in 2013 and needs to be updated. The website is designed based on the structure of city departments, which is not intuitive for most users.
The city engaged a consultant in May 2018 to develop a plan to make the website faster and easier for the public to navigate. The website improvement plan will be driven by user research, testing and input. This project will result in a new information organization and navigation system that improves the current website while laying the groundwork for a more comprehensive, future update to the city’s website.
