Regional indicators project holds community-wide event
The Greater Portland Vancouver Indicators (GPVI) project is in the final stretch of defining regional indicators, building a “community data commons” web site, and developing a business plan that outlines the future of the project. We recently held an event at Portland State University featuring Manuel Pastor from USC and Russell Hancock from Joint Venture Silicon Valley. The event introduced the GPVI project to the public and included a panel of local leaders to speak to the importance of a shared set of indicators to guide and align policy across jurisdictions. We also presented a first draft of a set of regional indicators and began to create the story behind the data.
