[ARCHIVED] City of Sequim Launches Two New Websites

The City of Sequim will launch two new websites on Monday, October 24, 2011. You are already visiting the new official Sequim city website. The new Sequim tourism website can be found at (See link below.)

The new websites were designed to make it easier for users to find the information they are looking for, providing better service to our customers. They also have a backend development structure that will make keeping the websites current and accurate more manageable.

New features of the City of Sequim website include multiple navigation paths to find information, a comprehensive calendar and a community Spotlight that allows featured news to be highlighted. The site includes an emergency alert center that will drop down over the top of the page, if there is a true emergency. Citizens can sign up for e-mail notifications on the type of news they are interested in. The site also has a photo gallery of the city and community events and allows residents to submit photos to the website.

The new tourism website is the official site for visitors to Sequim. It highlights local lodging, restaurants, shopping, tourist attractions, and activities. New features include a calendar of events that the community can contribute to, an electronic postcard that can be sent to family and friends, a photo gallery and a Spotlight of featured events.

The City of Sequim decided to update the websites because both were created many years ago, the technology was antiquated and they relied on the city’s IT staff or outside resources to keep them updated and current.
