The address of the new website is – www.cityofcastries.org.

    The goal of increased, interactive citizen engagement through the web, is venerable.

    Having surfed through the site, unless there is already exists a phased plan for a staged roll-out of expanded information and features, as it stands, and with apologies in advance for sounding trite, the site is simply a vehicle for propaganda.

    There appears to be little thought put into the site’s design, accessibility options for those with assorted restrictions, nor simply what the goal is for why one would visit the site.

    Long story short, there appears to be very little value-added.

    The time of the developers would have been better spent working carefully with the City to design a plan as to the intended audience, the desired outcomes, and the optimal platform options.

    If the site is meant to be a two way interface to both inform and engage with St. Lucians beyond Press Release 101, then they should save money, save time, and establish a Facebook page and a mobile app.

    As it is now, the web site is already a dinosaur better suited to exist in the last decade. Seriously.

      A Facebook “Page” does act as a website. There is a difference between a FB “Page” and a FB “account”. Many business savvy entrepreneurs use FB as their website.

    I visited their Facebook “Page”, and they yet to post pertinent information. It is still early, so I put my settings to receive “notifications”. Very good for public interaction. Good going CCC!!
