Upgrades to whistler.ca will include a new look, a more efficient user experience and a much-needed technical upgrade to enhance the website's role as a way to share information about and access to RMOW programs, services, and operations.
The RMOW has launched an online survey on whistler.ca to gather public input as part of the website upgrade project. Whistler residents, second homeowners, visitors and other users are being asked to provide feedback on strengths and weaknesses of the current website, as well as ideas for increased usability. The survey will be live until March 21, 2011.
The survey takes less than 10 minutes to complete via whistler.ca and stakeholder input will help create the foundation for the comprehensive website redesign.
Whistler.ca currently hosts a broad range of information for community members, resort guests, partners, and media and has approximately 18,000 visits per month. The site is also a resource for the delivery of services to the public such as municipal news, business license applications, recreation program registration, property tax information, GIS maps and much more.
Input gathered from the online survey on whistler.ca will be used to help guide the redesign project. The survey is part of an overall website review process that includes analysis of municipal websites and best practices, as well as input and analysis from RMOW internal departments for all sections and services on the site.
Work on the website began in January and is expected to be completed in November 2011. Whistler.ca will remain live during the entire upgrade process.
