Phelps County Development Corporation Launches Redesigned Website

3 Aug 2020

HOLDREGE, NE -- Phelps County Development Corporation (PCDC) recently launched a redesigned website to further strengthen its online presence and economic growth by integrating its new branding. The newly redesigned website includes better organization of content with easier access, a fresh and more contemporary appearance, and better display of news and social media articles.

“We’re very pleased with PCDC’s new design, however, we know this will be a never ending process. To be effective, the website will need to evolve to meet our organization’s needs, as well as those of the consumers,” said Ron Tillery, Executive Director at Phelps County Development Corporation.

By making the website “cleaner” and more interactive with the organization’s social media platforms, PCDC will enhance its ability to connect with targeted audiences. One of the goals that the website aims to assist with is to emphasize the Iron Horse Business & Industrial Park being developed to provide shovel-ready sites that will be served by rail.

PCDC collaborated with Golden Shovel Agency for its redesign project. The national economic development communications firm is recognized for its award-winning design and expertise in business and workforce attraction. “Our partners at Golden Shovel Agency provide the technical capabilities we need to put our best foot forward. Not only that, Golden Shovel helps us see what may be possible - they know what we don’t know when it comes to applying the best practices in website design,” said Ron Tillary.

“Working with Phelps County Development Corporation on this redesign project has been a great experience. This site will be a great asset for companies and potential partners to understand opportunities in the area, as well as demonstrates their economic growth potential,” said John Marshall, President of Golden Shovel.
