Abstract

This article demonstrates how a regional community indicators effort in the Portland, Oregon,metropolitan area has constructed an important tool for building the seven capacities of civic governance measured by the New Civic Index. The Greater Port-land Pulse (GPP) project engaged a broad spectrum of the community in a conversation about priorities for the future and built an information system that improves communication about priorities, enables informed inclusive dialogue, encourages partnership to address these priorities, and paints a vision for the community’s future.
