The new City of Kirkland web was designed to be more easily accessible for the common visitor. In the navigation bar, things are broken down by what the visitor is looking for. Community, Business, Visitors and Government have been made for easy access points for common pages the user will look for. Next to that is the department section that breaks down every department and all their sub-categories.

There are many common elements that you will find throughout the site.
The navigation bar will also remain the same, but when getting into department pages, the sub-pages are easily accessed on the left side.
