City of Nelson – Railtown District

The city has undertaken a community planning initiative for the Railtown district at the foot of Baker Street and wanted a website to assist in engaging stakeholders in the planning process.

What they got was a fast-loading, mobile-friendly, responsive design that works on any device. Hosted right here in Nelson, this self-managed WordPress site is based on a custom theme and pays special attention to performance, security, and best practices.

Concept and visual design are by Pink Dog Designs (Nichola Lytle) of Nelson.
