Performance Measurement Report & SMART Goals

Performance Measurement Report & SMART Goals
Posted on 12/07/2022

At its Nov. 21 work session, New Hope City Council accepted the 2022 Performance Measurement Report and SMART Goals Document. The document provides a measurable way for the city and its departments to work to continually improve overall levels of service and quality of life within the community. The Performance Measurement Report and SMART Goals Document is updated and presented to New Hope City Council annually.

First introduced in 2015, the Performance Measurement Report compares top-tier indicators, which capture the state of the City. City staff compiles the data from various sources, primarily the City Services Survey, an annual paper and web-based survey, and the Morris Leatherman Company Survey, an extensive professional community-wide phone survey.

SMART goals track Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Timely objectives set forth by department heads. SMART goals aim to tell precisely what is expected, why it is important, who is involved, when it will happen and which attributes are important. Such goals have a much greater chance of being accomplished than general goals. Several new departmental goals were introduced in the 2022 document.
