Mayor Brandon M. Scott: 100 Days of Action Tracker

Baltimore Mayor Brandon M. Scott created an open source tool to track progress made during his administration’s first 100 days. The creation of this tool comes after Scott convened more than 250 people to participate in his transition team. This group included community leaders, teachers, advocates, young people, artists, business owners and other residents. The idea was to help Mayor Scott develop both short and long-term recommendations for the next four years. A mayoral executive team review of the plans resulted in an initiative called 100 Days of Action, consisting of 58 specific actions. The open source tool is aimed at tracking progress toward those actions, breaking them into three categories: completed, in progress and not yet started. These actions are also split into six priority areas, with those being building public safety, making Baltimore equitable, prioritizing youth, building public trust, COVID-19 recovery and responsible stewardship of city resources. It’s all bright and color-coded, which makes it easy to use. The tool was built by the Baltimore Office of Performance and Innovation.
