New Colwood website online

City of Colwood's newly redesigned website is up and running, public input sought to fine tune

The City of Colwood’s newly redesigned website is up and running, and your input is needed to fine tune. “Our old website was kind of difficult to navigate and not very visually appealing,” communications manager Sandra Russell said. “It didn’t convey the beautiful surroundings and vibrant community that Colwood is.” The new site’s home page, which will be updated monthly with new features and photos, will focus on people and places in the community. One site feature allows residents to upload photos of the community, to be shared with visitors to the site. Colwood council meetings are also now being streamed on the site, both live and after the meetings. The last four council meetings are currently online for viewing. “You can jump right to that agenda item and watch the proceedings about that,” Russell said. “It’s cool.” The city is looking for feedback on the site. So far the response has been positive, Russell said, but any ideas or suggestions are always welcome. “We hope to hear, good or bad, and we’ll try and improve it,” Russell said. The site automatically adjusts its size for any screen size, from home computers to smart phones. Visit the new site at colwood.ca.
