PETAWAWA -The Town of Petawawa's new website officially went online recently.

The site located at www.petawawa.ca, designed by Kwebdesign, features a new layout, addit i o na l content and an upgrade to the content management software.

A week after council passed a social media policy, the finance and management committee got a peak at the website.

"There were two main goals in mind when designing the new site: to make it more user friendly and to improve the site as a key tool for staff in terms of conveying information to the public," explained economic development coordinator

Cyndy Phillips McCann.

The website now includes promotional video segments on the home page. For the visitor, streamlining the main menu will make everything easier to access. Designers have added a quick links menu with direct links to the most sought after information.

Simultaneously, the town has launched their own pages on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. The website received a grand launch at the Petawawa Spring Showcase.

Last month, council passed a social media policy, an initiative that will allow the community to engage with the public and show what Petawawa has to offer.
