Measures of Success That Apply to the
Effort of the Sustainability Indicators Council

       Three aspects of the SIC's work warrant recognition. First, they engaged the participation of individuals, businesses, nonprofit institutions, and government. Second, they developed indicators built upon data that can be collected, measured, analyzed, and reported on. These measures can be applied to natural or environmental conditions, public health and safety, economic, and social conditions. Third, the report applies to the full cycle of both private- and public-sector decision making. The report connects well to planning, budgeting, and implementation tasks.


Exemplary Leadership in Civic Engagement

       In the effort to address community concerns, the SIC linked diverse interests of business, government, and the community citizenry. The SIC continues to lead the discussion that results in action. Its work continues to align citizen engagement with performance measures and the implementation of both public policies and private-sector priorities. The SIC exemplifies cross-sector collaboration.


Awards and/or Recognition Received by the

The American Planning Association (APA) recently awarded the 2003 Cape Cod Sustainability Indicators Report: An Uncertain Future an honorable mention in the "Outstanding Planning Award -- Comprehensive Planning" category of the annual APA awards competition.
