About Performance Measurement & Community Dashboard
The City of Fort Collins is a data driven organization with a strong commitment to transparency. Our open budgeting process called Budgeting for Outcomes engages citizens to develop an organizational plan to provide the programs and services that are most important to the community. In recognition of this process and other accountability reporting, the City has been recognized by the International City/County Management Association (ICMA) for superior performance management efforts with a Certificate of Excellence from the ICMA Center for Performance Measurement™(CPM).
The community outcomes are determined by City Council through the City's budgeting process. Progress toward each outcome is determined by averaging four to seven individual metrics.
