Department of Housing and Community Development Gets a New Online Look
After nearly 20 months of work, the new county website is here! As of Friday, Dec. 15, 2017, the county website has a new online look. As a result, the Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) has a new look and more user friendly web address.
The new web address for the Department of Housing and Community Development is www.fairfaxcounty.gov/housing.
It’s an exciting change and a step into a new era. This is one of the most significant digital enhancements in the county and will improve our digital front door to residents and the world.
A few things to know about our new site:
This is the initial release of the new website. We have focused on publishing priority content, more information, features, and linkages will be added in the coming weeks and months.
The new site has been rebuilt from the ground up – the design, the information structure, the open source core system, and the search engine.
The new search engine may not show the latest results immediately. The same is true for google.com searches. It will take some time for search engines to crawl and index all of our new content.
A satisfaction survey is on every page of our website so you can let us know about your experience with particular pages, as well as other focused opportunities to better understand how the new site will be used over time.
Of course, inevitably, there will be some broken links as we make this transition, so we are committed to fixing those as soon as possible. Most links on the current fairfaxcounty.gov will change to new links. Thanks in advance for your patience!
