    • Vision & Strategy
    • Community Feedback
    • Board Meetings

This contract was a 6-month program issued from November 2023 – April 2024. This project included the addition of 71 pages of website content, growing from 35 pages to 106 pages.

The updated content will work to improve the above categories, and also provide a wide variety of information about Lakewood Departments, Operations, Finances, and Committee routines.

The project was done in conjunction with Checklist Media and Matchstick Websites.
