mySidewalk, with Help from the City of Fargo, North Dakota, Hosts Strategic Planning Webinar

Kansas City, Mo.—December 11, 2017


Local governments need to collect, share, and use data to achieve better results. Many have adopted policies and best practices for open data and performance management—but executing on those policies and practices has proven difficult. Even in the age of Big Data and Smart Cities, communities struggle to answer a basic but existential question: Are we becoming a better place for all citizens to live, work, and play? 

To help answer this question, mySidewalk is working with cities across the country to move static, PDF-style strategic community plans into dynamic, interactive online dashboards that align city progress with results and citizen survey data. 

During this webinar, Jennifer Funk and Brandon Gumm, members of the mySidewalk customer team, demonstrate how any community (large or small) can begin to incorporate data more into their workflow, specifically through their city’s strategic plan. This webinar recording also includes an interview with Nicole Crutchfield, Aaron Nelson, and Tyrone Grandstand, planners from the City of Fargo, North Dakota, who are tracking and visualizing progress on their Neighborhood Affordability Dashboard and measuring the impact of that work. Most importantly, Brandon and Jenn provide realistic next steps for identifying areas of focus in your community and building a collaborative environment for improving quality of life for residents.
