Township of Clearview

An Accessible Platform Designed to Serve Citizens
A design overhaul and accessibility updates have helped the Township of Clearview website better serve its citizens.

The Township of Clearview's beautiful rural backdrop and various services and amenities make it a welcoming home to both residents and visitors alike. With increasing interest in the area as both an all-seasons recreational destination and a place to lay down roots, the time was right for the Township to refresh its online presence to better showcase all that it has to offer. With just over 15,000 permanent residents and numerous local businesses and visitors, the Township required a municipal government website to ensure that this essential touchpoint was easy to use and accessible to all. 

The Challenge

The Township emphasized the need to create a digital presence that allows citizens with varying levels of ability to easily engage with information and features on its site, avoiding the burden that inaccessible design can place on certain users. For this project, we were excited to leverage our experience creating government and education websites and services, including the implementation of solutions tailored to meet Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) standards, to provide the Township with a new platform that is eye-catching, easy to navigate and user-friendly.

How We Helped

As we started the early stages of this website redesign, we knew that we would achieve the best results for the Township by approaching accessibility as something to enhance the experiences of all users—not just those who may have challenges browsing a conventional or WCAG non-compliant site. Embracing accessibility best practices as part of our brand strategy and design direction, we worked with the Township to ensure compatibility with specific accessibility tools without compromising design and structure.
