City Goal Results Minneapolis
The City Goal Results Minneapolis program is the way the City measures its progress toward reaching its long-term goals. The program brings people and data together through interactive reports and in-depth roundtable conversations. The reports and roundtables look at the City's role within large and complex issues to understand how we are doing and to find ways to do our work better.
The City's long-term goals are very broad. Community indicators help make them more specific.
The City's goals include:
• Living well: Minneapolis is safe and livable and has an active and connected way of life
• One Minneapolis: Disparities are eliminated so all Minneapolis residents can participate and prosper
• A hub of economic activity and innovation: Businesses - big and small - start, move, stay and grow here
• Great places: Natural and built spaces work together and our environment is protected
• A City that works: City government runs well and connects to the community it serves
To help the City understand its progress toward reaching these goals, the City Council approved thirty community indicators in September 2015. Community indicators are specific measures that help us understand, using data, how well we are doing.
Reports help tell the stories behind our community indicators.
Even with thirty measures, it can be hard to tell the whole story of what the City does. A big part of the City Goal Results Minneapolis program is focused on telling those stories, one at a time. The reports are short and focused on the key findings.
Roundtable conversations bring people together to discuss the reports and share ideas.
At roundtable conversations, City staff, community leaders, and elected officials discuss the key findings of the report. These conversations are open to the public. Each roundtable begins with a short presentation of the reports. The presentation is followed by a group discussion. Everyone is invited to participate.
