Throughout the work of the Lane Livability consortium it has become apparent that sharing and leveraging community data is very important to the analysis and decision making of planners and elected officials in our region. Many area agencies are developing and using data in new ways to assess needs and community conditions, target limited resources, and monitor performance over time. In addition, there are many tasks within the LLC that heavily rely on data. Yet, the availability and accessibility of data is highly variable both within agencies and for members of the public. Because understanding and accessibility of data is such an important part of robust and transparent planning processes, it is essential that we take steps to increase knowledge and sharing of key data sources.
