City’s Newly Redesigned Website Launches in Conjunction with the Start of the Fall Season.
Santa Clarita, CA – Completely redesigned and built in-house by the Information Services division, the City of Santa Clarita is proud to announce a brand-new website under the domain of SantaClarita.gov. The new website will launch on Monday, September 25.
The homepage of SantaClarita.gov has gone through a complete makeover, with a modern and easy-to-navigate, dashboard-style look and feel. Throughout the process of building the website, the City asked residents what they would like to be most accessible on the homepage. Utilities such as press releases, departments, services and signing up for Seasons classes are in plain sight and simple to locate.
SantaClarita.gov was designed to be as user-friendly as possible. Since most people browse and get their news on their cell phones, the site was built to be a “mobile-first” website, so it looks and runs smoothly on mobile devices and is just as easy to navigate as it would be on a computer.
Another popular feature is the integration of Artificial Intelligence in the chatbot Ask Sammy, where the City’s mascot, Sammy Clarita, goes digital in order to help residents find what they need. Ask Sammy will be there throughout your time on the website, equipped with the capability to search the entire site, whether it is information on reporting a pothole or any other assistance you may require. Ask Sammy is also available to interact via text messaging by texting +1 (844) 90-SAMMY. Message and data rates may apply.
With a .gov domain, residents can rest assured knowing they are navigating a secure website. Only the organization itself can own their .gov domain., so content is verified as coming directly from the City.
For more information about the City’s brand-new website redesign, visit SantaClarita.gov to navigate it and experience all of its features. There is also a suggestion box at the footer of the website to submit inquiries and requests. Being a City-built and operated government website, SantaClarita.gov will grow and evolve in line with our community. This season – fall in love with SantaClarita.gov.
CITY SEEKING COMMUNITY INPUT FOR POSSIBLE DEVELOPMENT OF A SANTA CLARITA MUSEUM AND CULTURAL CENTER.
Santa Clarita, CA – Cultural events, local history, incredible art, engaging programs for children – what would you like to see in a possible Santa Clarita Museum and Cultural Center? The City of Santa Clarita is exploring the possibility of developing a Museum and Cultural Center to showcase our community’s rich history, cultural heritage and celebrate the diversity of our City.
To kick off the planning process, the City is asking for your input. Santa Clarita has teamed up with a museum planning consultant to develop an outlook for what sorts of services and experiences the new Museum and Cultural Center should offer and what amenities visitors would like to experience.
“The City of Santa Clarita has long celebrated arts, culture and opportunities for lifelong learning,” said Mayor Jason Gibbs. “Our community has a rich history that should be experienced and diverse cultures that should be celebrated. We look forward to hearing from our residents about what they would like to see in a Santa Clarita Museum and Cultural Center.”
The Museum would offer displays focused on regional history and art, and work in tandem with the Cultural Center to serve as a hub for cultural events, presentations and organizations. The project is currently in the preliminary planning phase and a location has yet to be selected.
Residents are encouraged to take the survey by visiting SantaClaritaArts.com. All information will remain confidential and it will be used to help determine the future Museum and Cultural Center’s focus and priorities.
