Equinox Center is an independent, non-partisan, not for profit policy research and communications organization based in Encinitas, but serving the whole county of San Diego.
First published in 2009, the annual San Diego Regional Quality of Life Dashboard is a set of 16 indicators that together provide an easily digestible snapshot of how our region is performing across a variety of key quality of life factors, including: water usage, air quality, land use, waste, job creation, energy and climate change, housing affordability and economic prosperity.
The Dashboard shows how individual municipalities are performing, as well as how our entire region compares against others in California. It also shines a spotlight on innovative policy solutions in our own region and recommends new ones. Ann's presentation will highlight some of the key findings of the 2011 Dashboard.
Ann Tartre joined the Equinox Center as its Program Director in May 2009 and was named Executive Director in February 2011.
