Mayor’s Expectations Letter: “Increase Neighborhood Council election turnout to 40,000” Sustainable City pLAn: Livable Neighborhoods -this proposal creates opportunities for engagement and the formation of strong community bonds. Equitable Workforce and Service Restoration Plan: the increase in entry level positions (Administrative Clerk) would allow the Department to utilize the Targeted Local Hiring Program to find candidates in under-served populations. Strategic Plan: Expand Outreach and Communication Efforts for the Neighborhood Council System and Conduct Successful Citywide Neighborhood Council Elections PERFORMANCE METRICS This program’s performance metrics are tied directly into the effectiveness of the Department’s social media and website outreach abilities by measuring its online Klout score. The effectiveness of the program’s education to Neighborhood Councils about how they can better communicate with their stakeholders will also be tied to Klout score measurements. The number of City department collaborations is important, but the program added in a satisfaction survey to determine the quality of the collaborations as well.
