Breckenridge asks public to help redesign Web site

BRECKENRIDGE – In an effort to increase community interaction with its Web site and learn about hot issues, Breckenridge has begun a project to enhance its Internet presence.

A public forum on the project will take place at 7 p.m. today at the Breckenridge Recreation Center.

A forum aimed at the business community takes place at 9 a.m. Wednesday at the Stephen C. West Ice Arena.

People who want to join an advisory committee should call project manager Julie

Foster at (970) 453-3187, ext. 2 or e-mail her at

“It’s tremendous when you realize the abilities Web sites have today. People could potentially access information that’s always current at any time of the day, and the opportunities for increased community participation are tremendous – this ties in so well with the feedback we gained from the Vision Project,” Foster said.

ISITE Design of Portland, Ore., is assisting the town in its redesign, Foster said. ISITE Design has Web site design experience that includes a mix of commercial and government experience.

Foster said several ideas for the upgrade include more maps, current information and forums for community feedbacks. Other ideas are to access permits online, search via keywords or restructure the site to make it more intuitive.
