New web site launched at District of Sooke
The District of Sooke is very excited to launch a new website to better meet the needs of our community.
The website’s architecture has been reorganized and we invite the public to discover the new intuitive design and practical search tools of the new website. We are looking forward to an increase in visitor numbers, especially in terms of mobile visitors, as the new website is designed with strong consideration for mobile use.
The District has been working with Aukusti Media Design Studio (“AMDS”), a local web design company to develop the new website. AMDS built the shell of our new website and the process for staff to update content has been much improved.
New features of the website include: a fresh, colourful design that showcases photographs of Sooke; a home page that features District News, Public Meetings, Twitter Feed, Upcoming Events, Ongoing Projects, and Community Links; improved search capabilities; and online services such as meeting videos, Homeowner Grant, and property web inquiry. Interactive online mapping is also featured providing considerable land information and local parks and trails.
The Corporate Services Department oversees the District’s website, while working closely with the IT Department and departmental staff who are responsible for maintaining content.
“This group of staff are a key component of the website’s success as a communications tool” says Mayor Wendal Milne. “The new website will serve as a more effective communications tool for residents. Staff have worked very hard on this project and we are very proud of the final product.”
