BURA Metrics and Data

Measuring Performance

Performance measurements (metrics) allow BURA to assess if it is accomplishing its goals and objectives and to convey to residents and other community stakeholders the progress it is making on an annual basis.

Metrics put goals in perspective. The results received from metrics can provide insight and valuable feedback in assessing the goals and objectives that we have established. Ultimately, a city cannot manage what it cannot measure.

Metrics provide BURA with the data necessary to assess and re-assess programs, projects and overall investments.

They provide a baseline of performance, which can be used to quantify and assess changes in results over time. Furthermore, metrics highlight opportunities for investment and process improvements.

In February 2016, the BURA Board approved the adoption of eleven (11) overarching metrics to evaluate the annual performance of the Beaverton Urban Redevelopment Agency.
