County Commissioners Unveil Community Dashboard

On Tuesday, August 12, 2014, the Montgomery County Commissioners unveiled a digital dashboard to highlight how our community measures up in multiple areas and how Montgomery County, as an organization, can positively influence those areas.

“This dashboard will allow our citizens, businesses and local governments to retrieve accurate, timely information about metrics that determine our region’s economic vitality, attractiveness and competitiveness,” said Montgomery County Commission President Dan Foley.  “This data can help our management team track our progress, identify trends, and devise strategies to improve our efforts in attracting and retaining businesses, jobs, young professionals and families.

Development of the Montgomery County Dashboard originated as a result of MCOFuture, an ambitious initiative to engage our citizens, businesses, organizations and government leaders in serious dialogue about creating a path to success for the future of Montgomery County.  The County’s partners at the University of Dayton, Wright State University and Central State University took a hard look at how we compare to similar counties.  The research showed that “winning” counties have high educational attainment, economic diversity, relative tax advantages, coordination, cooperation and collaboration, and highly positive attitudes about their area's advantages and achievements.

The community dashboard looks at Montgomery County’s performance and achievements in seven key areas:

                    • Population Trends                               • Educational Attainment

                    • Community Advantages                       • Financial Stability

                    • Neighborhood Safety                           • Health & Wellness

                    • Economic Vitality
