Coral Gables launches new, more user-friendly website

Pictured is the new <www.coralgables.com> home page.

The City of Coral Gables recently launched a new design of its website.

The website, www.coralgables.com, now features a photo gallery of local sites, a calendar of events, and easier to find information on Government, Coral Gables, Attractions, Doing Business, City Services and “I Want to…” links. Icons at the bottom of the homepage guide users to view Coral Gables TV, e-News, job postings, city agendas, online services and more.

“The new city website is another significant step in providing better e-government services to the public. With this new design, the website is also more attractive and easier to navigate,” said Coral Gables Mayor Jim Cason. The City of Coral Gables website is a very popular source of online information and point of government transactions. Last year, coralgables.com received more than 5 million page visits. The previous website had been developed eight years ago.

The newly launched website was designed by Vision Internet, an award-winning leader in government website development. The project cost approximately $40,000, which included Web design, testing, training and development. The implementation was a joint effort between Vision Internet and the City, which resulted in improved online government services, ease-of-use features and enhanced graphics.

The City of Coral Gables continues to look for ways to electronically streamline services and make them more accessible to the public. Comments or suggestions on how to improve the city’s website can be sent to enews@coralgables.com.
