Phoenix launches dashboard to show city’s performance metrics
PHOENIX — The city of Phoenix unveiled the City Manager’s Performance Dashboard on Friday to provide a more user-friendly platform for the public to seek information.
The interactive online dashboard includes 130 metrics from 28 departments that measure the health of the city, according to a press release.
Phoenix launched the City Manager’s Performance Reports in 2014 to provide a similar function, but Phoenix City Manager, Jeff Barton, updated the platform for an online-dominated world.
“I am very excited to share these metrics with our residents and hope to demonstrate progress on issues important to them,” Barton said in a statement.
“This dashboard breaks down Phoenix’s progress on issues important to our residents so they can be engaged and informed.”
Residents can explore reports on public services like transportation and infrastructure, neighborhoods and livability and public safety. The website includes targeted goals and how the city is stacking up.
Metrics will be updated regularly with new measurables added in the future. There will be no removal of information, even if the city is lagging on its goals, according to the release.
“I am committed to meeting our goals as a city, and I am excited that through the new dashboard, residents can follow our progress in meeting those goals,” Barton said.
