New City of Lewisburg Website Up and Running

The City of Lewisburg has updated its website,, with a fresher look, more information and a user friendly format for visitors, newcomers and residents alike.
The new website provides a wealth of information about Lewisburg from members of boards and commissions to meeting dates and times. Now, the website is the place to obtain readable versions of the city’s zoning ordinance, municipal codes and subdivision regulations. One feature includes a calendar of events displaying dates and times for meetings and other happenings in Lewisburg.
Visitors to the site can also learn more about the Lewisburg Recreation Center or the Ellington Airport. There is a page detailing the history of Lewisburg and a page of useful links that will be updated with more links to more interesting websites about Lewisburg. The site even has pages with details about the various parks and recreation activities of Lewisburg and pages detailing the economic and community development opportunities in Lewisburg.
“We felt it was time to update our previous website and display the changes taking place in not only the city government, but in the overall atmosphere of Lewisburg,” said Mayor Bob Phillips. “We think the new website provides residents and visitors throughout cyberspace the information about Lewisburg that is vital to recruitment of commerce, industry and residential growth. Plus, local people can use the site to learn more about their local government and the city they call home.”
Tracy McMahon, local graphics designer, developed the new site and created its colorful appeal and user friendly format. She will maintain the site with updates and also provide employees of the City of Lewisburg a chance to update the calendar of events and minutes from all the meetings from the City Council to the Planning and Zoning Commission.
The site should also help Economic and Community Development Director Terry Wallace in his recruitment of industry and commerce. The site will let prospective decision-makers the opportunity to view for themselves what Lewisburg has to offer.
“We have wanted to bring our economic and community development program to the web,” Wallace said. “This site is the beginning of our vision to put Lewisburg in front of the right eyes so that they can see for themselves that Lewisburg is the place they need to be.”
The site is still a work in progress with information updates still to come but it already provides more information to visitors on the web than the previous site.
To see it for yourself, log onto and take a few minutes to browse around. You might find the site one you need to add to your favorites.
