Wheaton, Illinois – The DuPage County Board launched its new DuPageCounty.gov website, impacting more than 1.8 million users who navigate the site each year. Visitors search for property records, pay property taxes, request copies of vital records, apply for permits and licenses, watch County meetings, and even view animals up for adoption at the County animal shelter.

“Our previous website served us well, but it was more than 10 years old. We are thrilled to unveil this fresh, new site which utilizes updated design and technology that is more intuitive for the user and provides us valuable data so that we can continuously improve the site,” said DuPage County Technology Committee Chair Yeena Yoo.

Users will find improvements 

  • Streamlined content with redundant information removed, reducing the number of webpages from 1,659 to 963 pages, improving user navigation and search functionality.
  • New analytics to help staff better understand the website’s audience and traffic patterns.
  • Implemented designated accessibility menus for each page of the site, allowing individuals with disabilities to navigate the site more easily.

Visit www.dupagecounty.gov

Individuals who navigate to the site using the old URL, dupageco.org, will be automatically redirected to the new site at www.dupagecounty.gov. The DuPage County Board allocated $390,000 in federal funds from the American Rescue Plan Act to facilitate the website redesign.
