Highland Village rolled out the city's newly designed website during a Dec. 14 board workshop.

The website was last updated in 2015, and it is industry standard to update a website every four to five years, said Laurie Mullens, the city’s director of marketing and communications.

“Our city website is our story,” she said.

A committee was created with several city department representatives, Mullens said. Before the redesign, the city held a survey for residents to take on the website.

The survey showed most of the website’s users are residents between 45-74 years old, Mullens said.


Some of the top search results on the website included camping, adopting a pet, Doubletree Ranch Park, tennis, Pilot Knoll Park, trash, water and permits, Mullens said.

The goal for the new website was to create more apparent dropdown menus and showcase department information, Mullens said.

It was all about enhancing the user experience, she said.
