What is it?
With a shared pursuit of overall growth, prosperity, and sustainability for Northwest Michigan, the Coalition set collective priorities, with measurable economic, societal, and environmental goals.
The regional scorecard features shared metrics that track the region’s progress toward each goal, with specific targets for improvement by 2030. The scorecard measures and monitors change in the areas that matter most, emphasizing shared accountability and transparent communication along the way.
How to use it?
The scorecard is organized into three categories: Economic, Societal, and Environmental. Each category contains a well-defined vision, including several objectives, long-term targets and key indicators of progress. Each scorecard objective was identified with input from cross-sector Coalition contributors with relevant expertise.
Vision – A succinct description of where we see our region in 10 years
Objective – How we will measure progress toward our vision
Target – The specific and measurable long term goal
Key Indicator – A shorter-term target to measure progress toward our target and vision

How are we doing?
2020 marks the kickoff of this endeavor and the baseline for measuring progress. Each update of the scorecard moving forward will be measured against where we began when the scorecard launched in the Fall of 2020.
