Help Minneapolis Measure How It’s Doing

There’s a new project to help gauge how well the City of Minneapolis is doing at achieving its goals, and you can be a part of it. From now until Feb. 6, share your thoughts using an online engagement tool at http://success.minneapolismn.gov. City staff will use the information from you and others to develop measures for the most popular themes within each of the five City goals.

Once you log in, comment on what the City goals mean to you. For the City goal of “living well,” for example, you can tell the City what that means to you. Does it mean having connected neighborhoods? Access to amenities? Safe streets?

Because the online engagement tool uses crowdsourcing technology, the information will update in real time to display the changing input. Log in often to submit new ideas and vote on new information. It’s quick and easy to participate. The City is using tailored engagement strategies to ensure it gets a variety of perspectives from a wide range of communities including cultural communities, GLBTQA, seniors, youth and City employees.
