The ECOS Plan adoption in June, 2013 culminated efforts of over 60 organizations, working together - and defined a collective vision of a healthy, inclusive and prosperous Chittenden County. As we work collectively toward achieving our goals, this Scorecard will serve as a tool to help track our progress and guide our actions. This work would not be possible without the help of our partners: the public and public representatives (federal, state, municipal and regional), and the business and non-profit sectors. The ECOS Scorecard compiles accomplishments and indicators depicting progress towards all 17 of the ECOS goals. Each of the goals are associated with a set of indicators that together give an overall picture of what is going well and what needs improvement. The indicators are drawn from the most reliable statistics, objectively based on substantial research, and intended to be understood by broad audiences.
The notes that follow each indicator represent interesting trends seen in the data and the significance of the trend. Along with the partners that work together on actions the impact the trends in some way.
