SCOPE (Sarasota Openly Stands for Excellence) has revamped its website for easier access to data and community information. The nonprofit issues a Community Report Card, a community well-being assessment that examines demographics, learning, economics, health, social, civic participation, built environment, natural environment, and culture and recreation. Visitors will be able to interact with the web-based platform by choosing the level of detail they would like to see for each community indicator.
Other new features include a community calendar for civic and community events, and ways to direct website visitors from analysis to action by listing organizations that are doing work within each of the domains of well-being. Any community member can suggest that their event be featured on the community calendar, and any service organization can request to be featured on the website.
Visitors can request a Road Show (community data workshop), review community archives, contribute data through polls and surveys and find a SCOPE presentation that they may have seen just that morning. To visit SCOPE’s community data and engagement resource, go to www.SCOPEsarasota.org.
