City Of Hiawatha


The City of Hiawatha was in need of a modern, interactive site that connects with business owners, citizens, and those interested in the community. As a constantly adapting and evolving community, the Hiawatha website is easy to update with news, upcoming events, job opportunities, and more.


Our website strategists spearheaded this project by prioritizing user experience and navigation. The new site makes city content, resources, and directories easy to find. The clean and comprehensive design makes the user experience welcoming.


The new site and updated photo and video reinforce the city’s branding while giving a face to the friendly, small-town community.

The Website

Modern Minimalist

The City of Hiawatha’s former site was antiquated and did not serve the purpose it needed to. They came to Metro Studios seeking a new website that makes communication easier, better informs constituents and is user-friendly.

Website Development

Universal Design

The Metro Studios solution to bringing a 1995-esque site, up to date, was to design it as we would any other site. Our team also integrated functionality that is unique to the city’s site, making it a universal tool for users with various needs.

Interactive Layout

Our strategy led us to develop a site that had the following attributes: Easy to navigate, user accounts, bill payment, push notifications, city ordinance displays, activities and events display, and simplistic administrative control. This new design allowed users to interact with the city in ways they never could before, and its structure makes administrative maintenance effortless.

This shows that people are using the site as it was intended, as a resource they desired to continually use. Because the City of Hiawatha provides such a dynamic site for community members, it affirms their commitment to serving each member of the community.
