The city of Newnan will launch its redesigned website on Monday, May 22.

The new site features a more simplified main portal page with a focus on the city's active and vibrant historic downtown attributes, according to city public information officer Gina Snider.

"As websites sometimes do, our site had become cluttered and outdated," said Snider. "Through the redesign process, we have been able to clean up old information.”

A language translator and a newsroom will be featured on the home page, along with a Twitter feed on the homepage.

The site was redesigned by Revize, a government website design company in Michigan. Revize hosts the city's site and provides a free redesign every five years.

“The new site has easy access to many of the city's most popular pages via the new mega menus at the top of site,” Snider said. “A prominent social media ribbon box is on the site.”

The site is set up using "responsive web design," which automatically formats the website display depending on the device being used such as a computer, smartphone or tablet.

The city also has a central filing cabinet, Document Center, to provide access to city forms, reports, etc.

"We know regular visitors who visit the web page will love the new updated look that creates different ‘stories’ for the city," said Snider. "This is a new site for 2017 and with it comes a great new look along superior function."

The switch from the old website to the new website design will be occurring through Monday. The newly redesigned website design will remain at the city's current URL: www.cityofnewnan.org
