La Plata County

La Plata is a medium-sized county located in southwest Colorado, home to Durango and one of the most majestic skylines in the world. La Plata wanted a website that would show off the County’s natural beauty while making online services accessible from a wide variety of devices. CivicLive helped create an intuitive Information Architecture that prioritizes the services residents most frequently want such as permit applications, issue reporting, and access to County news. The County is streamlining the delivery of these amenities using our SitePublish’s Forms Engine and Newsletter distribution features.


How CivicLive helped:

  • Responsive Design with dynamic Mega Menus and an “I Want To” section to make sure site visitors can find what they need quickly.
  • Visually-assistive navigation with custom icons and pictures, ensuring that the site is accessible to a wide variety of users.
  • Customized subsites for the County Sheriff and Community Development Services.
  • Seamless integration with state-level service sites, other County websites, and the County’s existing third-party services.

“One of our main goals with this project was to get a CMS that is easy to use. SitePublish makes it possible for just about anyone to maintain the site, which allows for department level content managers to create, update and maintain their own pages. We’re particularly happy with the Forms engine – it’s incredibly easy to gather information, and since it’s built right into the CMS, we don’t need to rely on separate programs to create forms and tabulate the results.”
