Shaking your head right now thinking about the overgrown lot in your neighborhood?

Why it matters: Data is driving decision making in powerful ways.
- The data comes from your city’s version of a 311 mobile app.
📘 Story time: I attended a neighborhood alliance meeting last night where my city council member pulled back the curtain on a hot topic—panhandling at intersections.
- The city used data to decide where to focus resources—leading to significant improvement in select areas.
🙋♀️ The data came directly from people reporting the issue through the city’s mobile app.
Between the lines: Data driven decision making is a better version of “the squeaky wheel gets the grease.” It’s not about being loud and annoying. But IT IS about taking time to speak up.
