CCAP website of the year award 2 receives top state-wide honors

Chester County’s website,, received top state-wide honors with the County Commissioners Association of Pennsylvania (CCAP) naming it a winner in its 2018 Excellence in Website Awards.   The award, for website in a first-to-third class county, was recently presented to Chester County at the CCAP annual conference in Gettysburg, PA.

In presenting the award, CCAP’s first vice president, Kathi Cozzone, noted Chester County’s website design, its up-to-date content and user-friendly navigation as some of the reasons for the award. The judging panel noted website enhancements that led to accessible, modern designs with increased functionality, the highlighting of county services, and greater transparency to improve residents’ interactions with county government.  

Chester County’s website receives 110,000 site visits on average every month and provides valuable information on all County services including how to obtain a passport, paying taxes online, easy juror login, emergency preparedness information and health clinics.

Recent features added to the website are WebCAD, a web-based incident monitoring system that allows visitors to view real time fire, emergency medical and traffic incidents in Chester County; the Pipeline Information Center; a new online reservation system for parks education programs, camping and pavilion rentals; and Walkworks ChesCo! which encourages residents to sign up and track their steps towards the County’s goal to walk five billion steps by the end of this year.
