To strengthen communication, the Town is in the process of redeveloping the www.thebluemountains.ca website. As the primary communication tool used by both the public and the Town, it’s important the Town website delivers a positive user experience that is easy to search and navigate.

To ensure the website remains effective, the redevelopment project will focus on strengthening the user experience while improving the overall design and functionality of the site. The website will be developed throughout the year and is expected to be launched in November 2021.

Overview & Background Information

The Town’s corporate website (www.thebluemountains.ca) serves as the primary communication tool for all municipal information, project updates and community news. Through the budget process, the Town identified the need to improve and enhance the user experience of the website, and to increase staff productivity and workflow efficiency through the management of the website.

As the website is often the first touchpoint for both residents, stakeholders, and visitors, feedback from the community is an integral part of the extensive rebuild and website redevelopment process. The development of the new website is underway and will continue to take place through this year with a goal to re-launch a new fully functional website in fall 2021.

Upon relaunch, the website will:

  • Improve the end-user experience;
  • Feature a new and improved design and functionality;
  • Employ streamlined and simplified site navigation;
  • Improved content searchability;
  • Full AODA accessibility and security compliance; and
  • Enhanced and simplified staff processes.
