Site Standards
Addresses
  • Abbreviate all street identifiers unless they are in a paragraph.
  • Use address blocks like envelopes.
  • Don't add a break between addresses and previous paragraph that refers to it.

Example:
Fill out the form and mail it to us at:
Contra Costa County Department of Public Works
225 Glacier Dr.
Martinez, CA 94553

Commas
A comma is necessary before the final item. (i.e., I really hate cheese, Lima beans, biscuits and gravy, and extra commas.)

Use commas at other times as needed. (Hint, the word "which" almost always requires a comma).

Images
When using images for the site they should be no larger then the following in these instances:
  • Right contact with image (only for Division Chairs): 200 x 150 for landscape and 150 x 200 for portrait
  • Staff directory (only for Board Members): 144 x 216 (using standard options) 150 x 200 (when using basic HTML)
  • Resource directory: 160 x 120
