The Town of Devon is launching an upgraded version of its website on July 17, 2017. The upgraded website has many new features that will allow the Town to better serve its residents.

A website is generally the first impression of a community and one of the most efficient ways to share information about various programs, services and initiatives with residents and other stakeholders within the Town. While the pre-upgraded site served residents with information, several modules within the site had become outdated and it had limited functionality on mobile devices.

Some features on the upgraded site that will help the Town to better serve residents include:

  • URL Rewriter: This will allow for custom URLs on our web pages to better get residents to the information they want in one click (ie: www.devon.ca/election directly to election page).
  • New Public Documents System: The upgraded site has a document listing that contains every document on the site allowing residents to find documents more quickly and easily.
  • New Business Directory: The business directory on the pre-upgraded site was very difficult to use. The new directory looks cleaner and is very easy to manage.
  • New Calendar Module: The calendar module on the pre-upgraded site had become obsolete. The upgraded site has a new and more easily managed Community Calendar.
  • Upgraded News and Article System: A new module will provide more options for displaying news and information on the front page of the site.

“After joining the Town of Devon in February, I quickly identified several opportunities to improve our communications with our residents and stakeholders,” said Justin Janke, Communications Coordinator for the Town of Devon. “Getting information onto an easily managed website is the first step in the majority of our communications plans and this upgraded site will allow us to more easily do this.”

Look for the site to be switched over to the new, upgraded Town of Devon site on Monday July 17!
