New Washington County website
The Washington County website is an essential tool in meeting the needs of our diverse community. Since the County's last website redesign in 2010, much has changed with regard to technology, our service delivery systems and community expectations. In September of 2019, the Digital Experience Team in Information Technology Services initiated a multi-year planning and development process to launch a new, updated website. The look and navigation of the redesign are meant to provide easier access to information and online services.
The web redesign project has relied upon collaboration with a variety of stakeholders including community partners and website users, as well as County staff and outside consultants, to optimize the user experience. The redesign was also informed by listening sessions and focus groups with community-based and culturally specific organizations. Specifically, the improvements are intended to provide:
- a more aesthetically pleasing, readable and mobile-friendly visitor experience, including enhanced search capability,
- a more efficient use of communication technology, and
- a task-based environment that allows visitors to get more business done with the County more quickly.
Washington County will officially launch the new site on September 26 at 2 p.m.
