NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Metro-Nashville has a new look on the Internet. On Friday, the Metro government launched it's newly designed website. Officials said the new Nashville.gov site has been completely overhauled to be more interactive, user-friendly and optimized for mobile devices.
Mayor Karl Dean said the site has a lot of new features to make government more accessible to people.
"Whether you are a resident wanting to report a pothole or a business owner needing a permit or a visitor thinking of spending time here, the new site offers better, faster 24-hour access to information and services," Dean said.
Nearly 19 percent of the site's traffic is mobile, and the website has been redesigned with those users in mind. It will automatically reformat to fit any device screen size from desktop to smartphone.
Some of the highlights of the website include enhanced search capability, improved interactive calendar, map, and subscription tools. There is also a centralized social media center, and a "MyNashville" feature that will offer customized content to visitors based on their preferences.
Even more new features will be added over the next few months. Nashville.gov served more than two million unique visitors last year.
