Oregon State University Rural Studies Program and Extension Service faculty have worked with three rural Oregon communities to arrive at community-specific definitions of vitality and associated indicators. The indicators are drawn from economic, social, environmental, and community capacity dimensions. Baseline assessment reports of community vitality are available with the intention of re-examining after five years. Two projects were done at the county level and the third is at the community/municipality level.
Has Perfomance Measures?Yes
A target is associated with each indicator.
