The EcoDistrict Index provides a set of indicators to track neighborhood progress towards achieving sustainability targets within the EcoDistrict and our performance areas.
How were the current metrics chosen?
Throughout 2014, CHH worked with a task force of community members and technical experts to identify key performance metrics, collect data to establish baselines, and develop a reporting system to share progress over time. This process also included review by the University of Washington’s Cities Collaboratory, and feedback from an interdepartmental group of City of Seattle staff. We used the following 7 criteria to guide our decision making.
We hope the Index sparks conversation and improves over time with your help. Below are the initial targets and baselines.
