The City of Delray Beach Launches an All-New Website

Post Date:01/30/2019

The City of Delray Beach is pleased to announce the launch of their City new website. Launched at www.delraybeachfl.gov, the website boasts a fresh, new look and offers a more intuitive user experience making it easier for customers to navigate the City’s services.

Delivering a fully responsive experience, the new website gives users a seamless transition from desktop to mobile browsing.  Additional website improvements also include an all-new high definition beach cam, intuitive navigation, page translations over with 50 languages that include Haitian-Creole and Spanish and an improved search function.

The City has also switched the city website domain back to its original domain www.delraybeachfl.gov to improve their reliability and authenticity as a city government-owned and operated website.

“We are excited about the launch of our new site, and we hope visitors will be able to navigate our services with ease, says City Manager, Mark Lauzier. “One of the goals of the city’s website redesign was to create a better user experience for both desktop and mobile users. According our analytics, more half of our website users, 54 percent, are navigating on our site on their desktop, while 45 percent, are smart phone or tablet users. It’s important to us that we tailor the website to meet our customer’s needs.” 

“The website represents the dedication on the part of our Media and Communications team, says Nora Emmanuel, Public Information Coordinator and the Project Manager of the website project. “Community input was an integral part of this project. We gathered feedback through a community-wide survey, pulled our site’s analytics and conducted user testing, amongst other techniques to ensure we are aligning with the needs and wants of the community.”

“As we strive to improve all facets of our communication efforts, flagship projects such as this not only give us a huge amount of pride, but also demonstrate our commitment to excellence to our residents and visitors,” adds India Adams, Assistant City Manager.

The City also added a “notify me” feature to the city website so Delray Beach residents can sign up to receive notifications such as city alerts, press releases, events and meeting notifications sent out via email.

The City considers the website to be an on-going project that they will continue to update, adjust and make additions to enhance the user experience. The City’s plans to keep the site updated with fresh new content on a regular basis, including up to date information on projects, meetings and services.
