Description

  • Truckee Meadows Tomorrow (TMT) is an independent, non-profit organization that has engaged the northern Nevada community over two decades to identify a value system of measurable and actionable indicators to monitor the community’s success at preserving and enhancing quality of life. TMT currently tracks 33 indicators across 10 quality of life categories, updating more than 200 data measures on its Web site, publishing indicator briefings, and comprehensive “Well-Being Reports,” which also show the average citizen steps they can take to improve the measurable results of specific areas of concern. TMT also works with business and community leaders, local governments, educators and other nonprofits to identify collaborative opportunities to create positive community change through its Adopt an Indicator and Quality of Life Compacts programs.

Has Perfomance Measures?

Yes
Performance measures are included in data measures supporting TMT's 33-quality of life indicators: http://www.truckeemeadowstomorrow.org/quality-of-life-indicators

Has CI-PM Integration?

Yes
TMT's quality of life indicator data have been used in Washoe County, NV's strategic planning, budgeting and performance management system, which in turn, reports performance measures that are included as data measures for TMT's indicator. These same indicators have been used in varying degrees for decades of regional planning and city master planning.
