Emporia Rec commission to launch more user-friendly website

The Emporia Recreation Commission is working to revamp its current website with improvements to make it more user-friendly for patrons.

Marketing Supervisor Jennifer Bennett said the revisions were needed as the current website — www.emporiarec.org — has not been updated since 2011.

“The new updated website will mean ease of use for patrons of the rec center,” Bennett said. “We know people come here to spend their free time doing something they enjoy. The last thing we want to do is have a hassle to register, have them wait in line or be in line and not have all the paperwork needed. Our goal is to make the process as easy as possible so they can enjoy their experience at the rec center.”

Currently, registration and payments cannot be made on the website, forcing patrons to visit the center in person.

“We’re only open from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. and that’s always been an issue for folks,” Bennett said. “Registration has not been as simple as we would have wanted it to be, and this will make it much simpler.”
