[ARCHIVED] City Launches New Website Design

Screen shot.jpg

Welcome to the City of Roseville’s home on the internet, a completely redesigned version of Though the web address remains the same, we hope users will notice a dramatically improved experience.

The City’s new website combines the latest design standards and technological advancements to give residents an easier, faster, and more intuitive way to access information. And, for the growing number of people who get to the website using mobile devices, the new site includes responsive design technology, which adjusts the layout and design a seamless handheld experience without the need for an app.

“It has been clear for some time that the old website was not meeting the needs of our community on a number of levels,” City Manager Pat Trudgeon said. “The site not only needed a refreshed look, it also needed to be easier to navigate and provide visitors with a clearer way to find information. This redesign is a much needed step forward.”

The City’s previous website design debuted in 2007 and was an upgrade on the city’s original website, which was brought online in 1996.

One of the goals of the redesign was to make the most important information more accessible to users. To accomplish this, several analytical studies were conducted to find out which information attracted the most attention and whether what users were interested in varied at different times of the year.

The analyses led the City to focus on a flexible design that allows the most highly sought after information to be featured on the website’s front page.

The visual appeal of the website and making it more compatible with the City’s social media channels – Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and LinkedIn – were also key objectives of the redesign process.

Moving forward, the City’s communications staff, in conjunction with the Community Engagement Commission, plans to incorporate a two-way civic engagement module to give residents a convenient way to provide input on city issues and interact with City staff and elected officials.

The City Council green-lighted the redesign proposal in April, and work on the project began in late May. The design work was done by Manhattan, Kansas-based CivicPlus, one of the nation’s leading governmental website developers.
