Redwood City Website Wins Top National Award

Redwood City, CA - September 8, 2004 - Redwood City’s website at underwent a major revision last fall, and has now won the prestigious “Savvy Award” presented by the City/County Communications and Marketing Association (3CMA). The City’s website won the top prize in the category, “Best Technology Services – Websites” for jurisdictions with a population of 75,000 – 126,000.

With over 800 local government members, the City-County Communications and Marketing Association is the leading national organization for local governments that are innovating new and better ways of communicating with their communities. Here’s what the 3CMA judges said about Redwood City’s website:

“ Redwood City’s personality shines through with this fun and easy-to-navigate Redwood City, CA website. We loved the rotating combination of photos on the home page, the drop down menus and hot topics feature. This is what a government website should be. In the spirit and words of Astronaut Neil Armstrong: One small step in web design, one giant leap for web kind.”

“The Savvy Award represents the best that local governments have to offer,” said Redwood City Mayor Jeff Ira. “We’re proud that our website is recognized as being in the upper echelon of local government sites from around the country.”

Redwood City’s new website was unveiled last fall, after more than a year of work by City staff. The site promotes a consistent image, reflects the City’s core purpose and values, and offers the community an effective means of obtaining information and becoming engaged with the City. With over 77% of Redwood City citizens connected to the Internet, it’s important that the City provides a top-level, up-to-date website, and the accomplishment of this goal recognized by 3CMA.
