Redesign Process

About the redesign

We're in the process of creating a new website for Asheville from the ground-up with simple, mobile-friendly designs, more intuitive organization, and clear content.

Throughout the redesign process, we've been collaborating with people like you to inform the direction and usability of the site. Please continue to send us your thoughts.

Where are we in the process?

For the past few months, we've been working closely with content creators, City colleagues, and the public to rewrite service information and to design features that better meet your needs.
