Douglas County Announces New Interactive Website


“The redesigned website will be easier to use, allow for greater user interaction and will be a valuable tool to increase engagement and transparency with the community,” Dr. Romona Jackson Jones, Chairman of the Douglas County Board of Commissioners said.

The website just underwent a brand-new redesign process by CivicPlus, the leading government website provider. The website now has an integrated technology platform as well as a cleaner, easier layout to navigate.

Citizens and their Douglas County government will be able to effectively communicate, monitor, and report through some of the new featured modules and a prominently placed search bar on the front homepage of the website:

  • Notify Me: allows citizens to subscribe to various email lists for their particular interest
  • Community Voice: allows residents to submit ideas for improvements and changes they would like to see within the community
  • Connect Douglas, Douglas County’s fixed transit bus system, has its own webpage

With the new website Douglas County will be able to increase its community engagement and enhance the communication between residents and the local government. 

“We are asking citizens to become subscribers to the website so they can continue to receive notifications of events happening in the county as well as emergency notifications,” Rick Martin, County spokesman said. “We are working hard to have a seamless transition of communication between the county government and citizens.  We know whenever there’s something new, it may be hard to accept, but we believe citizens will embrace this opportunity and experience gleefully.”
