City asks for help tracking progress on key goals

The City of Minneapolis has launched a Community Indicators Project to give the community a chance to weigh in on how city leaders are progressing on key goals.

The City Council adopted a vision outlining values and key goals for the city in March 2014. They include ensuring Minneapolis is safe and livable, eliminating disparities, making the city a hub of economic activity and innovation, connecting natural and built spaces while protecting the environment and running city government well and connecting it to the community.

The city plans to collect input from the community to help it define what success means for the city on reaching its goals. It plans to engage a wide range of communities, including cultural communities, GLBTQA people, seniors, youth and city employees.

People will have a chance to offer thoughts at listening sessions, paper surveys and via the online tool until Feb. 6.

Once all the feedback has been collected, city staff will create measures for the most popular suggestions for each city goal.
