Kent Chamber launches re-designed website

The Kent Chamber of Commerce has launched a fully redesigned version of its website at

"Promoting Kent as a great place to live, work, and visit was very important," said Steve Pener, a Realtor at William Pitt Sotheby's. "To that end, we tried to design a site that is very user-friendly for everyone -- full-time residents, business owners, as well as visitors.

"We also wanted the site to highlight the town's great sense of community," said Pener, the Kent Chamber board member who oversaw the site's development. "So we are very excited about the Community Calendar feature, a central place for people to post and find out about events in our town."

The site was developed in coordination with Evan Dobos of PictureThisWebCenter, a web design and marketing agency located in Torrington.

"As an organization trying to promote local business, we picked Evan because of the work he had done for some of our neighboring towns," said Peter D'Aprile, the Kent Chamber president and owner of the Kent Apothecary.

PictureThisWebCenter recently developed Torrington's as well as an events site for the town of New Milford.

"It was a lot of work putting together, but we are very happy with the results," added D'Aprile. "And as the Chamber of Commerce, we are committed to continually improving the site and adding new features as we roll along."
