Chicago Hub Issues Website RFP
The Village of Northbrook, Illinois has issued a website RFP With a population of roughly 33,000 residents, and a daytime population well above 50,000, the Village of Northbrook is considered the retail, commercial and industrial hub of Chicago’s North Shore, in addition to being a community where residents expect and receive only the best municipal, school and park district services.
The Village views its website as the flagship of its communications program and the primary method of communicating with residents and businesses. The Village is seeking written responses to the RFP for its selection of a qualified firm to provide website development services to the Village.
The Village currently manages a website located at www.northbrook.il.us and seeks a revamped site.
- Create a Village website with an attractive design, utilizing artwork and graphics as appropriate, that is user friendly and informative but avoids the use of complex elements that would increase page-loading times or require advanced browser features. The design should highlight and showcase the amenities of the Village as well as demonstrate the Village’s position as a premier North Shore community. The website structure must be easy to navigate and be created in a manner that avoids multiple layers, allowing users to obtain answers quickly.
- Consult with individual operating departments and other offices within the Village to determine their needs and design an appropriate page for each department and office; each page will retain the overall general look and design of the Village’s entire web presence. Offices and departments include, but are not limited to, Development & Planning Services, Economic Development, Engineering, Finance, Fire, General Government, Human Resources, Police, Public Works, President and Village Board (elected officials), and various Boards and Commissions.
