Placer County Looking for Public Feedback, Ideas for Redesigned Website

February 19, 2014

Placer County launched a remodeled website Friday designed to ensure the public can find the information it needs quickly and efficiently. County officials are encouraging the public to check out the redesigned website and provide input for the county to consider as it continues working to make the website as user-friendly as possible.

“Our Web Team has a single-minded focus: meeting the needs of the public, our customers,” said Director of Administration Services Jerry Gamez. “We held many public meetings and surveys to make sure we were on the right track, and are confident we developed a website that is intuitive, easy to navigate and mobile friendly. We want to make sure the public agrees with us, though, and welcome everyone’s feedback and ideas for us to consider.”

The newly redesigned county website can be reached by clicking this link: Website. The public is invited to provide feedback and ideas for the remodeled website by E-mail.

Placer County began redesigning its website about a year ago with several goals in mind: making it more user-friendly, providing a better search engine and taking advantage of software improvements.

The improved site provides:

  • A citizen-centric design;
  • A mobile-friendly solution that enables accessibility to everyone on any device at any time;
  • Simplified content and information;
  • Enhanced navigation capabilities;
  • Language that is easily understandable; and
  • Improved search capabilities.

Created in 1997, the website has served since its inception as a tool for many types of users, including residents looking for information about services, businesses seeking background on Placer County’s economy, and tourists looking for recreational activities available in Placer County.

The next step will be to set up a link on the county home page for the public to provide feedback. This feedback will help the Web Team gain a clearer picture of what types of information people are seeking when they visit the website and how to continue to make improvements to the home page.
