Denver, Colorado (population: 554,636 ) Clean, crisp – yet still sophisticated – front page includes city news, succinct menu, and efficient search engine. There is a lot of info here, and it’s easy to find. Denver’s site offers more searchable databases than any other we’ve seen – from executive orders to real estate foreclosures, restaurant inspections and campaign finance contributions. There is a lot of emphasis on safety-related issues, including but not limited to disaster preparedness, that goes above and beyond the norm. In addition to imparting a “we care” message, these features empower citizens to preserve their own health and safety. Through the About Denver pages, users are just a few clicks away from an extensive listing of links to city departments, agencies and services, listed in alphabetical order or classified by the city’s organizational structure.
