Join governments around the country in our Digital Front Door community as we find ways to improve our city websites together
Cities must meet their citizens where they are spending more and more time: online. Municipal websites are the digital front door to a city - a place for sharing information, conducting business, and collecting feedback about what residents want and need. Our Digital Front Door community is a group of local government practitioners who are redesigning municipal websites to improve the experience for both citizens and city employees.
Who we are
The Digital Front Door community is made up of over 50 people working in governments around the United States working to improve city websites. See all the Digital Front Door members.
What We're Working On
Using Web Analytics
We're working with cities around the country to deploy our free, open source City Analytics Dashboard. Powered by Google Analytics, this tools brings staff closer to their online constituents and creates an opportunity to understand the work they do online.
Partnering on a Website Redesign
We partnered with the City of Oakland on a website redesign project that will help them understand their residents’ online user needs, create an alpha site, and navigate procurement issues to hire a local web development team.
Resources for Digital Front Door
We're publishing a set of resources, guides and tools for cities doing website redesigns.
