City leaders sometimes tell us they use a local website vendor for their city websites. While this is commendable — as any ‘buy local’ effort is — it is often a short-sighted approach to delivering high-quality, sustainable, and scalable digital government services.

California proud

"I’m most proud of our process. The team that worked on the website did an amazing job and it was such an incredible learning experience for us. We learned about user-centered design, beta and iteration, and lean development principles." - Rebecca Woodbury, San Rafael, Calif.

“We are proud to offer a searchable site that is also becoming a hub for all our our departments, boards and commissions. Our previous site was not as user-friendly so we had external sites for Recreation, Police and Commissions such as Volunteers and Open Space. The ProudCity platform has allowed us to bring all these sites together and offer our community a central, user-friendly site.” - Camille Esposito, Fairfax, Calif.

“I am most proud of the group of individuals who worked together on this project, learning a new, user-first based platform, and dedicating the many days, nights and weekends spent not only creating new content and pages, but transitioning content from our old website.” - Brian Dossey, Colma, Calif.
