Lawrenceville launches new site
LAWRENCEVILLE - The city of Lawrenceville recently launched a redesigned Web site at www.lawrencevillega.org featuring fresh graphics, updated content and user-friendly navigation.
Eager to spotlight numerous local initiatives, Lawrenceville's City Council commissioned Rock, Paper, Scissors - a creative agency based in Lawrenceville - to take on the project. The agency has implemented the first phase of the renovation.
"Our foremost objective was to build a user-friendly Web site that reinforced the sense of pride we have in Lawrenceville," said Amanda Sutt, of Rock, Paper, Scissors.
City Councilman P.K. Martin, who was instrumental in moving the Web site project forward, agreed.
"We established early on that the site would be a valuable go-to resource," he said.
"Beyond that, it would be a savvy marketing tool that showcased the best of what Lawrenceville has to offer. I am pleased to say that we have accomplished our goals."
