Virginia-Highland Civic Association Website Gets a New Look

Out with the old, in with the new.

The Virginia-Highland Civic Association website got a fresh new look this week.

The redesigned website features news, safety alerts and easier navigation through important zoning and planning documents.

The site was built from the ground up and allows board members to easily update sections of the page they may be responsible for.

"The news on the site is much more timely, relevant, and complete, and fits together with the new email updates we introduced back on December 1st," board member Brian Gross said Friday. "All in all it means we're able to get much more information out to our residents - and back from them as well."

Gross serves on the communications and planning committees and urges residents to give feedback about the new site through the survey.

The board of directors began disucssing the redesign more than a year ago. Gross said it took about four months to design the site, build it in WordPress and input all the content. Most of the work was done at highly discounted rates or on a volunteer basis.
