The City of Boulder’s Community Dashboard provides the public with data related to city programs and community indicators, organized according to the city’s Sustainability + Resilience Framework. Developed by the community, the framework provides a vision for an inspired future and aligns efforts across the city by establishing a common language for goals and priorities. We are working to enhance this dashboard using public feedback, so check back for ongoing updates.
