The City of Foster City has improved its website!

On August 29, 2013, the City launched its new and improved website. The website is designed to make it easy to find information about the City and its programs and services.

"We are excited that this new format will make it easier for current and prospective residents, businesses and visitors to find out what is happening in our City," said Assistant City Manager Steve Toler who also serves as the City's Public Information Officer. "Transparency and easy access to information is a priority for us and this new website will make it easier for us to accomplish this goal."

One of the features new to the site is a "Dashboard" dedicated to the City's "Sustainable Foster City" program – a demonstration of Foster City's leadership in the areas of Economic Vitality, Environmental Sustainability and Quality of Life. Visitors to this area can see why Foster City is a great place to live, work and play. Other new features of the site include additional navigation to reduce the number of "clicks" to find information and the ability to easily feature on main pages timely and important information for quick access. Existing content was reviewed and updated and new content was added to reflect information typically requested by the community.

The website transition was spearheaded by the City's Information Technology Division with contributions from every City department. The new website structure was designed to allow visitors to the site to find the information they are looking for quickly and easily. Frequent visitors to the site are encouraged to update links to information they use regularly as links to the old website will no longer work.

"Our goal was an easy to use site which contained information for all of our community – the residents, the businesses and our visitors; and would showcase our beautiful community," said Information Technology Manager Joan Schoening. "Anyone who has a stake in what the City does can find useful information on our website within just a few clicks."

For many years Foster City has consistently made information available to the public online. The new website has updated graphics and a sleek, clean look and feel with even more ways to access information.
