The Beebe Draw Farms Authority, in partnership with Colorado Interactive, dba Colorado.gov and the Statewide Internet Portal Authority, (SIPA), has launched a website on the state’s Pacific platform in Drupal. The new website, www.Colorado.gov/Beebedrawfarms, is a great tool which allows the Authority to better serve its growing community.
“We are very excited about being one of the first websites to move to the Pacific platform,” said Lisa Johnson, district manager of Beebe Draw Farms Authority. “Working with Colorado.gov was fast and easy. Taking only three weeks to re-develop our website, we are now live and eager to show it off to our community!”
The website can be managed by multiple people and updated in just minutes. Beebe Draw Farms Authority has leveraged the calendar feature to keep their community aware of upcoming events and board meetings. It also provides access to community agreements, forms and permits.
The website includes a custom view on the homepage which allows community members to make online payments for several local amenities, such as purchasing a fishing license for Lake Christina, RV storage fees and pool fees.
Established in 2011 and located in Weld County, the Beebe Draw Farms Authority is responsible for the operations and maintenance of the two districts that make up their community. The Authority is also responsible for capital improvements and amenities, as well as any new construction and infrastructure for the area. Each district is made up of five board members with District 1 representing the developed land of which there are currently 55 homeowners, and District 2 which represents the undeveloped land and open space.
Since 2004 Colorado.gov has partnered with SIPA, the state’s oversight body, to accelerate the adoption of e-Government services by placing more Colorado government products, services and information online. Together, SIPA and Colorado.gov provide more than 200 no-cost websites to governments across Colorado.
Colorado.gov is the official website of the State of Colorado (http://www.colorado.gov) and is overseen by the Statewide Internet Portal Authority. Colorado.gov helps State and local government entities Web-enable their services and is operated without tax funds through a public-private partnership between the state and Colorado Interactive, LLC. Colorado Interactive builds, operates, maintains, and markets Colorado.gov and is part of eGovernment firm NIC’s (NASDAQ: EGOV) family of companies.
