City launches new website at pittsburghpa.gov

 

August 22, 2017



The City of Pittsburgh has unveiled a new design and functionality of the website, pittsburghpa.gov.

The new site was created and developed by the Department of Innovation & Performance (I&P) and is a major milestone for the city’s primary digital resource. The last significant update to the website occurred in 2011. The new design incorporates features that will significantly improve the user experience:

• The responsive design will work on all devices, including computers, tablets and phones.

• A powerful search function will allow users to easily find the information they want without having to click through unrelated content to reach their destination.

• The new interface will make it easier for users to navigate the site with an emphasis on user experience and accessibility.

The website launch is the beginning of a series of upgrades and improvements planned for pittsburghpa.gov. In the coming months the I&P Web Team plans to enhance and upgrade the website with new features and usage data to ensure that the most popular content is easily found. The new interface was specifically built to enable designers to adapt and make improvements over time based on user preferences and industry standards.

The next phase of upgrades is expected to include:

• Additional mapping technology to improve the display of information

• Dedicated pages for immigrant/refugee communities in multiple languages

• Social Media Center that will further enhance the connections between city government and residents

User feedback is an essential element to continually improve functionality of the website over time. The I&P Web Team created a “Feedback” button on the main page and requests that the public submit comments pertaining to the new website.

To access the feedback form, click the “Feedback” button in the bottom left corner of the main page.

The new website was created in house by I&P employees. There are no direct costs associated with the website or launch.
