Driven to create more meaningful and engaging content, St. Louis Park put its website contributors through content strategy and accessibility training to learn how to write from the citizens’ point of view.

“Using plain language makes local government sound more approachable. Hopefully the benefits of what we learned in Granicus’ content strategy training will continue to extend beyond the website and spill over into all the writing we do for the city. Whether it’s council reports or notices to residents, we need to write like human beings.”
