Research has shown that a community's attractiveness to residents is heavily influenced by the quality of its local government. In order to attract and retain talented citizens, cities and towns need to adopt leadership models that not only promote efficient and effective public services, but also prove they are accountable and responsive to their citizens' concerns.
The contents of this database were gathered with those principles in mind and with a focus on practical solutions such as handbooks, guides, and checklists to help you put these tools to immediate use within your own community. The Municipal Governance Knowledge Group has also identified six key practices that may help you narrow down your search.
