These are just a few of the interesting facts you can discover on the new South Bay Cities Council of Governments (SBCCOG) website, at

The SBCCOG has completed a redesign and upgrade of their website. Working with consulting firm Urban Insight, the up to date and user-friendly website successfully provides a unique, professional identity for SBCCOG, improving access to the organization and its activities, and information about its 16 member cities in Southern California.

Visitors to the site will be able to see SBCCOG meeting agendas, minutes, recent news and upcoming events as well as the quarterly newsletter. The site also provides easy links to all of our member cities and to regional agencies. The sustainable content management system (CMS) easily allows SBCCOG staff to add and edit content pages as well as posting topics and comments on an intranet forum. The new "dynamic", database-driven information architecture integrates site navigation and content sections by categories, meaning that site content can be cross-listed by subject matter. For example, information on different projects or reports includes links to relevant news and events, and SBCCOG working committees, and vice versa.

The Internet accessibility standards-compliant site includes an impressive streamlined search function, allowing visitors to search across SBCCOG's several hundred pages and numerous reports by keyword and subject.

"This redesigned site will allow our member cities as well as others interested in the South Bay to go to one place and be able to access information about our activities and the area. We welcome suggestions for including additional information that would be helpful," said SBCCOG executive director Jacki Bacharach.


The South Bay Cities Council of Governments ( is comprised of 16 cities, and works to maximize productivity and quality of life for the entire area. The participating cities include: Carson, El Segundo, Gardena, Hawthorne, Hermosa Beach, Inglewood, Lawndale, Lomita, Manhattan Beach, Palos Verdes Estates, Rancho Palos Verdes, Redondo Beach, Rolling Hills, Rolling Hills Estates, Torrance, and the Harbor City/San Pedro communities of the City of Los Angeles.
