City of Northfield to give city Website an overhaul

citylogo.gif The City of Northfield is kicking off the first step in redesigning their web site; gathering input from the public on what they want to see and use on the city web site.

There will be 2 public input meetings in addition to other feedback gathering processes for gathering as many public comments, suggestions and ideas for the new City of Northfield website as possible.

The first meeting will be on Monday, May 23rd at 7:00pm. The event is located in room SS103 of the Northfield Community Resource Center. For those who can't make Monday's meeting, a second meeting will be held June 14 at 5:30pm at the City Hall.

Livefront (the company hired to gather requirements for this project) has set up a blog to post project updates, surveys, and other ways to get involved: The Northfield Web Site Redesign Blog.

I stand corrected. Thank you very much for the clarification!

I just stongly feel that the city MUST try to spend its dollars in the community first, and only go outside if there is not a resource available.

I look forward to attending your meeting!


I guess the only thing that I have to say is, about freaking time. That site has been realy realy bad for a long time. I'm glad that they are fixing it.

With all the talent we have in this town, they ship the work off to the cities.

So much for the city council's thought of keeping the money in town first.


Actually, Livefront _is_ from Northfield! (

I (the founder) grew up in Northfield.

A lot of our work does come from Minneapolis. The "Minneapolis Web Design" you see in the title bar of our site is for Search Engine Optimization. Most companies looking for web firms in Mpls and surrounding areas search for "Minneapolis Web Design", not "Northfield Web Design".

Is LiveFront actually going to be doing the redesign as well?

Incidentally, I've seen both the Emmaus Church site and the EDA site and literally thought "Wow, this is incredible. I wonder who the designer is?" Then I read in the Northfield News about LifeFront's connection with the website and was excited to have finally found the designer.

So, I'm hoping that LiveFront will be doing the design itself, as well.

P.S.: I suppose this hasn't been decided yet, but is there a projected timeline for this project?
