Talk of The Town

City of Riverside Launches Redesigned Website

  • The City of Riverside launched its new website this week at www.riversidemo.com.  The site includes a new layout and design as well as several features that aim to make it easier for users to access government services and information.  The last comprehensive update the City did on its website was in 2010.“One of the features we are most excited about is its responsive design.  This means that it is automatically resized for any screen, including mobile devices,” Meredith Hauck, Riverside Director of Administration says.  “Although it was time for an updated look and feel for the website, the driver of this redesign was to make sure that the technology behind the site was in line with how people use the internet today – from their mobile phones.”The website also keeps a strong focus on helping the user find what they are looking for.  A better navigation system was included, as well as a search box placed prominently on the homepage that allows citizens to use the site much like they would a search engine.“People rarely come to our site to browse around.  They are often looking for something specific and we want to make that a quick and easy experience for them,” Hauck added.  “This redesign also gave us the opportunity to clean up our content and make sure the most up-to-date information was available.”The City spent $7,000 on the site upgrade and partnered with Aha Consulting, a company based out of Oregon who designs open source municipal websites.  Riverside previously worked with Aha Consulting on the 2010 website redesign and contracts with them for ongoing website maintenance.

Riverside Lands Another Auto Parts Plant

  • Riverside plant’s incentives listed

  • State breaks are worth at least $3.2 million. Supplier for GM will generate 290 jobs.

The Kansas City Star
Martinrea International of Canada will get more than $3.2 million in tax credits and job training incentives to come to Riverside and employ 290 people at a new auto parts plant.  The Missouri Department of Economic Development outlined the incentives Thursday as the company had a groundbreaking ceremony that included Gov. Jay Nixon. Some details of the Martinrea plans were released Wednesday ahead of the ceremony . Martinrea signed a longterm, build-to-suit lease to occupy a 275,560-square-foot building that is expected to be completed by early 2015.
 The plant — Martinrea’s first in Missouri — will manufacture welded, corrosion-resistant engine cradles and automotive assemblies for the nearby General Motors Fairfax assembly plant in Kansas City, Kan.  The other terms of the transaction, such as how much Martinrea will invest in the plant, were not disclosed. The plant will be on 15.22 acres at 5233 NW. 41st St. in the Riverside Horizons Business Park.  Erik Murray and Nathan Anderson of Lee & Associates Kansas City negotiated the lease.  “Martinrea is a first-class company and a real win for the entire Kansas City metro area,” Murray said in a release.  “Their new facility in Riverside will be a state-of-the art assembly and distribution facility, and we’re very proud to have been a key component of their team throughout the site selection process.”  Murray also said the the plant “will include stamping, welding, e-coating and assembly operations all under one roof, creating time and cost saving efficiencies for both Martinrea and their GM client.”
