Strategic Plan Community Indicators 

Within each of the five Strategic Plan goal areas, the refreshed Strategic Plan included a series of global metrics that would serve as a means with which to gauge overall County progress toward achieving Strategic Plan Goals. The metrics (measures) include 17 “Community” Indicators, which are broad and high-level gauges of the community which can be used to inform the creation of community wide policy and overarching progress toward the five Strategic Plan goals.
