Redesigning a municipal website is a tactical challenge. So a full site reorganization was in order when Leinicke Group redesigned the website for the City of Arnold, Missouri.
It is important for a city to keep its residents, businesses, and organizations up to date regarding City business, actions, and events. Since launching the City of Arnold website in late 2015, Leinicke Group has been tasked with keeping the citizens, businesses, and organizations of Arnold, MO updated on topics of importance on a continual basis.
Site updates are performed usually daily, according to their importance. Critical or time-specific information may require posting during evening or weekend hours. Updates include everything from natural disaster assistance to municipal workshops to swimming pool hours of operation.
For maximum positive user interface experience, the City of Arnold home page was designed to utilize a top image slider to announce upcoming activities, events, and notifications. “Below the fold” on the home page, visitors can find Latest News headlines with links to full stories inside the site. Additionally, a right sidebar displays the most recent Upcoming Events, which link to the City Calendar, as well as Quick Links to important website pages and documents.
