NCRD Launches New Website
PRINCE RUPERT - The North Coast Regional District (NCRD) has launced a new corporate website. Features are a clean and uncluttered design, improved functionality, and enhanced rich content focused on the residents served by the regional district.
The new website is one component of a comprehensive rebranding initiative undertaken by the NCRD starting in 2015. Included was public and stakeholder consultation through to the development of new logos and other marketing collateral in support of the corporate name change from the Skeena-Queen Charlotte Regional District to the North Coast Regional District.
The NCRD has been working with award-winning Upanup Studios out of Victoria to develop these materials and the newly launched website.
The website redesign was done to modernize the look and feel of the site, and make the website more useable, professional, and adaptable. The new NCRD website also provides more information and interactivity for and with residents, visitors, and the general public who live, work or play within the north coast.
“The North Coast Regional District has optimized the use of our website to facilitate better communications with all residents and audiences,” says NCRD Chair Barry Pages. “We want to ensure we are providing a website with thorough and current information that will serve our residents’ needs.”
Key features of the new website include improved navigation, search engine optimization, enhanced internal search capabilities, mobile device compatibility, and compatibility with all major browsers in a user-friendly layout.
Among other purposes, the NCRD is using the website to provide bylaw information, departmental information and updates, NCRD news and events, as well as emergency preparedness communications.
