In an effort to improve communication between city government, residents, businesses, and visitors, as well as enhance community engagement opportunities and make doing business easier, the City of Ventura is pleased to announce its new website, www.cityofventura.ca.gov.
The improved site has refined navigation for an enhanced user experience and a mobile-friendly design that supports all devices including smart phones and tablets making it easier for citizens to access City information.
Developed with user needs in mind, the updated website features five large icons on the home page to access the most-used functions: Public Meetings, City Service Requests, Videos, Contact Us, and a new feature called “Notify Me” (which allows users to sign-up to receive notification of public meeting agendas, public hearing notices, emergency bulletins, public works construction updates, special event announcements, bid postings and more via email or text message.) My Ventura Access, a popular feature to notify the City of issues, concerns, or opinions, is accessible through the City Service Requests icon.
Five mega menus help citizens quickly find information in these main categories: Government, Services, Community, Business and How Do I. Residents and businesses can access forms such as permits, file a police report, and conveniently pay for services online such as water bills and parking tickets. The new site also features Google Translate wherein the service translates web pages into more than 100 languages with one click.
