Town of Golden gets a new Website

The Town of Golden has launched a new town website which will help visitors and local residents learn more about what's happening in Golden.

The Town of Golden has launched a new town website which will help both visitors and local residents learn more about what is happening in Golden.

David Allen, the Chief Administrative Officer for the Town, explained the new site will have many benefits for many people.

Allen said the new site is a great improvement over the previous site in both a visual and content management program.

“We are able to do a lot of the changes internally whereas in the past we would have had to go out to the IT consultants to make the changes. Now we can manage most of the contact,” he said.

Allen said the changes can also be useful to provide information to residents. One example of how it can be used is the special sections with information which may be discussed in the current byelection and referendum.

“What we have here is a ‘What’s New’ section. One part of that (for example) deals with the Bridge to Bridge project and the council and byelection page,” he said. “What we have is a webpage in the site specifically dedicated to both the project and the election. There are messages, the question in the referendum and a great deal of information if people are interested.”

The new site will allow a great deal more information that was on the previous  site so that people will be able to stay more up to date with what is happening in the community. It will also have links to Kicking Horse Culture, Tourism Golden, The Kicking Horse Country Chamber of Commerce and other local sites.

“They are all there and connected to our site,” he said.
