Culpeper County Economic Development

Promoting Growth in a Dynamic Virginia County

Located only 60 miles from Washington, D.C., Culpeper County is an pleasantly refreshing hub of industry, commerce, and culture. The area combines Virginia’s historic charm with the fast-paced success of a growing business scene, making it an ideal place for residents to live, work, and play. 

Culpeper County approached us in pursuit of an economic development website design that would highlight key information and show off all that the area has to offer. We joined forces with our longtime friends at Liaison Design to create an attractive site that satisfies the county’s need to convey information about business opportunities, area data, and community events. 

A Winning Partnership

We often collaborate as a web development partner for design agencies by helping to expand their own offerings to bring their clients complete solutions. We’ve worked with Liaison Design for over ten years, so we were thrilled to partner with them again on the site for Culpeper County. 

Liaison developed a design that blends soft colors with graphic icons and a modern sans serif typeface. When we brought the site to life, we were excited to see that the combination was a perfect reflection of the county’s distinctive identity and character. 

 

A Dynamic Site for a Growing Community

Throughout the site, visitors encounter features that invite interaction and engagement. This begins on the homepage with the inclusion of prominent image sliders, an eye-catching stat bar, and clear cards that direct visitors to key areas of the site. 

One popular and unique feature is the Property Search tool. Many of our economic development clients utilize similar features, so we have extensive experience incorporating them into sites via an iFrame, custom development with an API, hosted tool, or another approach. For Culpeper, we were able to leverage the Virginia Economic Development Partnership’s tool and ensure that it was seamlessly incorporated into the site in terms of both look and functionality.  

Results are displayed on a helpful interactive map with a corresponding list that offers a detailed profile for each property listing. In addition to exploring the offerings by name or address, visitors are invited to filter properties based on criteria like acreage, property type, and proximity to transportation hubs. 

Looking Ahead

With growth in mind, we built the site on a flexible WordPress setup that allows administrators to easily scale and customize the site with new content blocks. Site administrators are able to quickly update statistics, add new content, and maintain the Property Search tool as the county continues to evolve. We’re excited to watch the growth ahead through our continued partnership with Culpeper County.
