The City of Alexandria has launched a new mobile-friendly design that makes it easier to browse the City’s website on your smartphone. Approximately 20 percent of all visitors to the City’s website now access the web from a mobile device, and that percentage is expected to rise as more people access online data on the go.
The new mobile website has been streamlined for speed, ease of use, and readability on smaller screens, while retaining all of the content and functionality of the traditional full site. In addition, there are no separate URLs to remember, or duplicate pages for mobile versions of content. Visiting alexandriava.gov will seamlessly display the format that works best for the user’s device, and will offer the ability to set and remember a preference for mobile vs. desktop view.
The mobile design makes popular elements of the City’s website easy to find and interact with, including the homepage news features, Citywide events calendar, social media connections, online services, site search, emergency news, and more. Launching the new mobile site is an initial step in making the City’s information and services mobile-ready, and is part of an overall strategy that includes future development of applicaitons and websites that are equally accessible at a desktop computer or on a mobile device.
