About the Entry

The newly redesigned, the state's official website, was released in early 2013 as a more user-friendly, engaging portal providing better access to government information and services. Designed for mobile-first content, the site uses responsive design techniques to automatically scale content to the smartphone, tablet or desktop device being used. The site features a prominent intuitive search where results can be filtered to access more than 200 online services, agency publications, and maps.

Geo-location features detect the user's location to display the closest government offices, state parks, and motor vehicle (MVA) offices, complete with wait times. Crowd-sourced, local photography highlights activities across the State and showcases current events through a rotating graphical montage. Information is easy to locate through the main navigation bar with pop-up mega menus complete with secondary navigation, links to government programs and the latest social media updates.
