Redesigning phila.gov

About the redesign

We understand that the City of Philadelphia’s current website, phila.gov, isn’t easy to use. So we’re in the process of creating a new site from the ground up—with simple, mobile-friendly designs, more intuitive organization, and clearer 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:

  • Use the site’s feedback links to alert us to content errors and design feedback.
  • Sign up to be a beta.phila.gov tester. We’ll contact you for specific feedback on features as we design them.

Where are we in the redesign process?

For the past couple of years, 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.

Alpha

Alpha.phila.gov went live in December 2014. The alpha prototype was revised throughout 2015.

Beta

Versions of beta.phila.gov will roll out in 2016 and 2017.

Launch

Beta.phila.gov will become the City’s new website in 2018. With your help, we’ll continue to improve it after that.
