The city’s new website is preparing to make a splash.
Council has accepted membership onto a new splash page design that brings together several of the city’s major organizations.
Proposed by Tourism Rossland, Deanne Steven, executive director of Tourism Rossland, presented the new design to council on Jan. 27 in order to obtain permission to include the city on the page.
Steven had iterated to council the importance of using the page design—complete with a new city logo approved by council late last year—to keep it streamlined with current branding.
It includes links to the City of Rossland website, the Rossland Chamber of Commerce site, Tourism Rossland and rosslandevents.ca.
The splash page pictures scroll every five seconds, and the pictures will be changed (which can be easily done) periodically.
The splash page uses all of the cohesive brands, said Steven.
“It provides a fresh look and feel,” she said.
Tourism Rossland required council’s approval to load it onto their site.
Tourism Rossland had a grant to pay for half of the cost of developing and designing the splash page, with the other half coming from Tourism Rossland.
