Done

  • Created design subcommittee to work with local design firm on color palette, image gallery, iconography, typography, and overall look & feel.
  • Identified workflow and process issues to solve with online forms and new digital services, such as reserving a park facility, filling out a claim form, filing a noise complaint, and understanding permit requirements.

  • Learned how to add new pages in the CMS.
  • Further developed draft content for residents, businesses and visitors landing pages, adding pages and content behind the icon buttons.
  • Added and trained more staff to our new constituent relationship management platform.
