As part of an ongoing effort to manage its image, brand and marketing strategy, the City of Casa Grande has recently launched a revamped website. The new site aims to improve user experience, navigation, and content. Residents, visitors and businesses are encouraged to explore the new website at casagrandeaz.gov.
Enhanced features on the new website include:
Created with smartphone and tablet users in mind, the website utilizes “responsive design” to display content correctly on both internet browsers and mobile devices.
Simplified page layouts:
In order to help users locate information more quickly, excess pages have been eliminated in favor of tabs. Each department page includes a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) tab that readily provides the information most often requested. Each sidebar contains relevant contact information, hours of operation, fees (if applicable), popular documents and links, along with a map to the department’s facility or office. Additionally, each page now includes a “News and Updates” section to provide timely, in-depth information on projects, events and news.
Searchable citywide calendar:
The calendar provides information on all upcoming events, classes, public notices and meetings. More detail is provided on the new site than on the previous site, and users can now search and filter the calendar by topic, venue or category.
There is now a centralized location that houses key documents for all of the city’s departments. Users are able to search using document titles or keywords or browse by selecting the corresponding department’s folder.
For easy navigation, the footer now contains links to the most utilized elements of the website. The sections of the footer include links to the most popular services, forms to report issues or problems to city staff, quick links to resource pages and links to stay connected with the city via social media, email notifications and Channel 11.
