District relaunches website as fully mobile 

The District of West Vancouver re-launched as a fully mobile website on July 7.

The site gets approximately 50,000 visitors each month, and statistics show us that half of those visitors are using mobile devices, such as cell phones or tablets.

A mobile-friendly website is more convenient for residents seeking information, but it's an important safety issue too, as residents may need to access critical safety information on the website during an emergency when mobile devices are the only option.

While developing the mobile site, the District took the opportunity to refresh the design and enhance the navigation. Because monitors are wider now than when the original site was designed, they were able to add three new categories across the top menu bar to reflect up-to-date priorities, projects and directions. The District invites you to take a look at Environment, Be Involved and Visit West Van.
