Subject: RE: Focus website index page feedback
Yes the (Winter Lights) festival was wonderful.
Yes, the new site, while still redmond.gov to the outside world is completely different on the back end (database driven). So all links will be different - no old bookmarks will work and content is now organized functionally rather than by department. So for those who use it frequently, it will be a little frustrating for awhile.
If you have links to content on your blog now, please send them to me and I will get you the new links to the same content as soon as I have them. We launch the new site Wed. AM. (12/8)
Thanks, Marta Gronlund

Sent from my Windows Mobile phoneWhen, and if, I receive the new website links from City Communications, I'll update RNB links.
It's my understanding the new city website link is redmond.gov.
Redmond Neighborhood Blog (RNB) reports on Open Government and links extensively to the city website to provide proof sources for my research; and important city information RNB provides could be compromised.
RNB is the oldest, ongoing hyper-local media site in Redmond. A plethora of city website links going back over four years are momentarily disabled. However, the majority of RNB readers rarely click on links, so little will be truly lost to your reading enjoyment! And, Redmond's repairing their end.
