City of Portland

Does anyone else feel that the official City of Portland website needs a fresh look? It appears to have been created in the late 90's.

There are dozens of web design companies in the city that should be calling the city and urging them to start the bidding for a new design. What better way to promote our fine city than with a fine website? It would also be good if it were more friendly for the current residents.

I urge you to suggest a new design via the "eContact System" on the city website. I have!

And this article has some interesting rankings of the best "E-Government websites," including states, cities, and counties. Maybe we can get some ideas?
