City of Fontana Launches New Website


Website Redesign


Fontana, Calif.-  Finding information about City programs and services just became easier online. The City of Fontana recently revealed a website redesign with a modern new look and user-friendly search functions. The redesigned website’s improved navigation aims to make it easier for the public to find what they’re searching for when they visit fontana.org.

"This project truly was a citywide effort and would not have been successful without the support and hard work of a lot of people," said Information Technology Director Ray Ebert. "We hope those living, visiting and working with the City enjoy exploring the newly redesigned website and easily locate the information that they are seeking." 

Some of the features incorporated into the new website design include: dramatic and compelling imagery, improved navigation based on web traffic and search metrics, responsive edge to edge design and multi-language support. 

A discussion that started in the City of Fontana Information Technology Department about improving the website turned into a 3-year-long redesign process that involved the participation of every department. The previous website design was last updated in 2009, which laid out content from a government perspective. The new design delivers City information in a modern, transparent and user-friendly way, and also incorporates a large search field. The design motto "Live, Work, Play in Fontana" played a crucial role when considering navigation and images throughout the site. 

Website Redesign Fast Facts:

  • Over 2,000 outdated documents were identified and deleted
  • Half of department and division content was consolidated
  • 60% - 80% of stale, outdated and irrelevant content was deleted
  • The City created over 50 "personas" that were used to identify how specific audience groups are using the website and developed the new layout based on the "personas" to better serve the public's needs.
