Meet mySidewalk’s Strategic Planning Dashboards

As communities begin to incorporate more data into their workflow, specifically through their city’s strategic plan, the ability to track, analyze, and communicate progress on key initiatives efficiently becomes challenging.

Moving your community’s strategic plan online to a dynamic, interactive environment makes it easier to visualize data, automate updates, and tell a story beyond the numbers. It also creates an impactful, collaborative environment for measuring progress on the priorities important to your community.

We deliver strategic plans with measurable impact.

mySidewalk is working with cities across the country to move static, PDF-style strategic community plans online, shifting them into dynamic, interactive environments that align city progress with results.

The amount of effort it takes to analyze existing data means that we are limited in our ability to deliver insights to the organization and community. This capacity is additionally taxed as we integrate data that will continue to emerge through smart city infrastructure. mySidewalk will help us get more data-driven insights to more people, and save time and resources in the process.
— Julie Steenson, Deputy Performance Officer and Senior Performance Management Analyst at the City of Kansas City, Missouri

Our Dashboards make it easier to: 

  • Create a collaborative, engaging, and data-driven narrative for your community
  • Provide context to key initiatives and bucket those priorities by area of focus
  • Visualize data using auto-generated charts or graphs, including any of the 2,000+ pre-loaded datasets in mySidewalk or locally-uploaded information specific to your community (i.e. citizen satisfaction, historical data, building permits, utilities, etc.)
  • Show real-time progress and growth with automated data updates
  • Pinpoint and highlight specific places using data-infused, interactive maps with filters
  • Compare data between neighborhoods, council districts, peer cities, and locally-uploaded or areas drawn in our tool
  • Share the impact of your work with key stakeholders using exportable data, charts, and reports

All mySidewalk Dashboards are mobile-friendly and viewable on any device.

Community Dashboard

Our Community Dashboard solution is created by the mySidewalk team using a City Insights Template that can be ready in as little as 5 business days. This dashboard highlights 5 common areas that many communities focus on in their strategic planning process: transportation, health, education, economy, and citizen satisfaction. Each section includes data linked to key performance indicators that can help visualize progress in your community. Before we create this dashboard, we ask that you simply supply us with a banner image of choice, custom URL preference, and home page copy that outlines the goals and important priorities of your community.

Pricing for this solution is $3,500.
