The following was sent in by Yvonne Merrill regarding the new Seven Lakes West website: https://www.sevenlakeswest.org/default.php.
The re-design of our new updated web site and Home Page emphasizes ease of use. Whether a first time guest, new resident or a seasoned member, the eight photo-icons will steer visitors to the focus of their interest and a short video will take them on a virtual tour. Existing members will still find familiar pages under member log-in. If someone is considering buying or building in our community, they can easily access the information they need. If they want to know about the lake, golf, or amenities, clicking the photo-icon will give them more information. Other icons will tell them about clubs and activities, governance, finance, or history; it ”s all there. This Home Page presents Seven Lakes West as a premier lake and golf community in a beautiful, natural environment that offers a wide range of activities and amenities to foster an active lifestyle for people of all ages.
Additionally, the web site will take visitors beyond our neighborhood of Seven Lakes West to the broader Seven Lakes community, the surrounding areas of Moore County and the region. From our pages, folks can explore recreation, shopping, dining, parks, schools, art, music, health care, and more; all of the things that make this a unique place to live, work or enjoy retirement.
For some time, the web site re-design has been the focus of the Board of Director Secretary, Bert van Domselaar and former Communications Chairperson, Pat Zlotin. They found and recruited people with the needed technical skills. Work with our knowledgeable Webmaster, Tim Theis, and Eblast Manager Clara Karnish was vital in determining what direction to go and forming a plan. Other members of the Communication Committee contributed research, wrote copy, proofed, gave feedback, and opinions. Adding to the mix, a resident focus group assembled to provide input and offer recommendations as well. Our group of resident volunteers gave of their time, skills, and effort resulting in an improved, easy to use web site. Moving into the next phase, we will continue to fine-tune and change the web site to suit the community and the region.
