Local governments face increasing pressure to transition to a more citizen-centric form of service delivery that is transparent, holds the government accountable, and provides an easy pathway for community members to be involved in decision-making. In many ways, this is a shift towards a more sustainable community. But for many local government leaders, limited staff and budgets make it e it difficult to even think about, let alone take action towards, incorporating “new” tasks into the daily staff routine to create a more sustainable community. Examine current trends in indicators, transparency, and smart cities, as well as a specific case study from Nashua, N.H., that shows how to develop and tell a community’s sustainability story based on available data. The City of Nashua had neither a sustainability director nor a sustainability plan when it employed a sustainability dashboard to share the data that framed its sustainability profile and engage community members in the effort to improve that data.
