The City of Cedar Park, TX is one of the fastest-growing suburbs in America according to Forbes Magazine. This increase in population can be attributed to the City’s close proximity to downtown Austin as well as its inviting natural beauty. While the City grew under the National spotlight the past five years, the website remained static, became dated, and eventually fell behind. To bring the website up to current needs and expectations of residents, the City teamed up with Vision Internet to create a new website featuring a variety of modern online services and interactive features.
Under its new URL, www.CedarParkTexas.com
is something the community can be proud of and utilize as a powerful informational tool. The dynamic homepage streams upcoming events, the latest news stories, and notable calendar dates that can be easily added to users personal calendars. The user-focused main navigation efficiently categorizes interior page content and services. The site even caters to Spanish-speaking visitors, translating the entire site to Spanish when the Español link is clicked.
Social networking has been thoughtfully integrated into the website. When posting stories to the news sections, staff members are able to automatically post to the City’s Twitter profile and/or Facebook page. Meanwhile, direct links to the City’s Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Flickr account are all prominently displayed on the homepage. By working these complimenting communication platforms into the website, the City is sure to continue to grow physically and virtually.
