Earlier this year, several pages on the City’s website underwent redesigns to content and look. The newly redesigned webpages include District Election Mapping, Garden Grove Animal Care Services, Garden Grove TV3, and Community and Economic Development Department.

“The City’s website is the first impression people have of Garden Grove, so we make it one of our top priorities to offer users content that is visually appealing and user-friendly. The website is overhauled every two to three years, but updates are made regularly,” said Charles Kalil, Information Technology Director.

In the District Election Mapping webpage, residents can now search their home address for their district number, street sweeping and trash pick-up dates.

New to the Garden Grove Animal Care Services webpage is the “Found Animals Listing” link under the “Lost and Found Animals” tab. The webpage gives pet owners the opportunity to check for their lost pet. The “Reunited Animals” tab shows pets that have been recently reunited with their owners after being found by Animal Care Services or dropped off at Orange County Humane Society by Good Samaritans.

The Garden Grove TV3 webpage was revamped with new features, including easy to find links to their award-winning video productions.

The Community and Economic Development Department divisions: Planning Services, Building Services, Neighborhood Improvement, Code Enforcement, and Economic Development webpages were reorganized to make information more accessible and to allow the divisions to highlight important components.

New to the Code Enforcement webpage is the “What Types of Codes Do We Enforce” page and the “Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)” page to direct residents to appropriate channels for their concerns.

The Economic Development webpage has links to the City’s completed, current, and upcoming projects. The tourism link takes users to the Grove District Anaheim Resort and Visit Anaheim.

Next year, the City will redesign the website with inputs from City employees and community focus groups, comprised of Garden Grove residents and business owners.
