A little more than two weeks ago, the City of Summit launched its newly redesigned website. The new interface was engineered to provide an updated visual experience for users, improve browsing and the ability to more effectively connect people with the information they are looking for on the site.
Beyond the new website search feature, the site includes news, meetings and city calendar sections. You can make payments online, submit service requests or get NJ Transit schedules and information. If you have not visited the City of Summit website recently, I strongly suggest that you check it out, soon. http://cityofsummit.org
As a contributor to the development of content on the new website, I am particularly proud of the Environment section, a tab in the navigation at the top of the page, which contains Environmental Commission, Recycling Advisory Committee, Shade Tree Advisory Committee, Green Schools and Green Living pages. Fast and convenient access to environmental issues and information is becoming increasingly important as we work together to move towards a sustainable future, and sustainable Summit.
Please use the new site to stay informed and see what is coming up. Or better yet, get involved. The City of Summit has many interesting, rewarding volunteer opportunities available for residents.
With best wishes for a healthy, happy and green 2012!
Amy Cairns Harrison, City of Summit Environmental Commission Chairman
