Improve cultural and recreational opportunities throughout the state
How citizens measure success sets the decision framework. For example, longer life expectancy or lower incidence of disease would indicate to most people that the population was healthier. Similarly, high employment rates usually signal that the economy is doing well.
Research and experience suggest that certain strategies are more likely to help us achieve the identified success indicators. We evaluate whether currently budgeted strategies and activities accomplish what was intended.
