The City of Brampton has launched a new performance reporting dashboard called City Dashboard 1.0. It is an online tool that helps the community to see how the City’s daily operations contribute to community outcomes.
The City Dashboard groups measures into six themes to give a snapshot of services, strategic goals and community conditions. Finance and Assets and Customer Service represent foundational operational and strategic financial measures. Community Well-Being, Livability, Economy and Urban Form reflect the things the City is working on daily, to influence and improve in the community.
Along with a status and graph, each measure features a story that talks about why it matters, how it gets measured, and the progress the City is making. A “related links” section provides more context on Strategic Plan initiatives, day-to-day services, programs, maps, plans and studies.
The dashboard reinforces the City’s commitment to openness and accountability. Monitoring municipal service performance and community measures will help drive innovation and influence continuous improvement to support Brampton’s growth as a connected global city.
Find Brampton’s City Dashboard at www.brampton.ca/dashboard. As version 1.0, there will be more to come as the City refines its data collection practices. The City encourages users to share any comments or ideas via the “dashboard feedback” button located within the dashboard. – CINEWS
