While the Town of Lockport has offered its residents, for a number of years, a Town website as a modern means of communication, the site was in need of a significant upgrade. The current website is out of date, reliant on a 3rd party vendor for updates, and in need of an overall refresh of the “look”.
The new website project was also undertaken as a direct result of the desire by the Town to be more resident focused and more proactive and regular in their communication and making information readily available.
A subcommittee of Town staff and Council members issued an rfp, selected a new web developer and worked with Town Departments to upgrade their page layout, links and information presentation.
As of April 1 the new website is live (same www.elockport.com) with all its enhancements and improvements. While the changes and additions are too numerous to mention in this blog we would highlight; a Town Leadership page, a Community page, a dramatically enhanced Visitors page complete with a visitor focused business directory, a searchable Town Staff Directory and access to the Town code, updated Zoning Map and access to the Town GIS. A number of quick links have also been added.
Our best advice is to encourage you to access the new site, bookmark it and explore at your leisure.
We look forward to regular updates and hearing your feedback.
