WEST HOLLYWOOD—The city of West Hollywood will be re-designing its website in 2018 with new features and is asking for the community for feedback to ensure the website fits all needs of its residents.

According to a press release from Joshua Schare, Communications Manager for the city of West Hollywood, 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 by visiting www.surveymonkey.com/r/MWSQQ99.

West Hollywood is a highly digitally connected community and digital communications tools, like 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 of West Hollywood website receives an average of 160,000 page views each month. It was last redesigned in 2010; a new redesign scheduled to be launched in mid-2018 will help West Hollywood 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.
