Welcome to the City of Lowell's New Website
Dear Website Visitor,
If you are a regular visitor to www.lowellma.gov, you may have done a double take - but you landed on the right page - and I am glad you are here as I am very excited to announce the launch of the City of Lowell's new website.
While the City's website has gone through many updates since its 1998 introduction, this website overhaul may be the most significant. Within this new website, you will find new content, better navigation, an improved use of general media, updated links, additional language translation, new mapping and data integration tools, and an entirely new look and feel with a focus on City Services. Planning for the new site began years ago, gradually taking shape with the input of many voices and the expertise and guidance of our MIS Department. I am very pleased with the result, and hope you will be as well.
Take a look around. You will notice that some material has been relocated, and that we have taken this opportunity to remove duplicate or out of date material. If you can't locate something, please try the new search utility, or visit the previous website (which will remain available through 10/31/13, with limited functionality and support).
If you were accustomed to the navigation on the previous website, you'll see a significant change, which means that any pages you have previously bookmarked will need to be updated. Incidentally, if you experience any issues viewing the site, you might need to update your browser, as this new website is best viewed in current/modern browsers including Safari, Firefox, Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer 8+.
As with any new website, there may be a few glitches that need adjustment over the next few weeks, so please bear with us while we work through some "cosmetic issues" which we are in the process of fixing. Also, while some pages may appear sparse, rest assured that we are all working on adding and updating content during the coming weeks and months, and have exciting plans for the continued growth of this site.
We envision www.lowellma.gov becoming a destination site for City of Lowell services, just as www.lowell.org has become the "Live Here, Work Here, Play Here, Learn Here" destination site for residents and visitors alike.
Thank you for visiting the City's new website, I look forward to your feedback, and I hope you'll return again soon!
