Strategic Planning: Shaping Community with Informed Decisions

Suite IV - 10:30 AM

A strategic plan without actions and measures is simply an aspiration. Communities can successfully adapt and achieve their goals for the future by identifying opportunities, setting expectations, and monitoring progress. In this session, you will see how local government is strengthening their strategic plans and decision-making with new approaches and data. Projects in this presentation include water shutoff equity analysis, CIP decision-making dashboards, utility accounts analysis, and a tax exempt property dashboards.

Featured Projects:

CIP Decision Support Dashboard

Northbrook and MGP identify priorities and verify practices by bringing data together. This unified dashboard consolidated water main ratings, pavement ratings, and lead water services to support capital improvement project decisions.
