Civic Health Community Leaders

Storytelling at Historic Price House

The Spartanburg Community Indicators Project partners with Indicator Area Leaders to improve outcomes in each of its seven Indicator Areas.  These organizations set improvement goals based on indicator data and lead individuals, businesses and community groups to coordinate efforts and information, thus facilitating steady progress in quality of life improvement.

 

The Spartanburg County Public Libraries serves as the Indicator Area Leader for the Civic Health Indicator Area. The Libraries convenes a group of professional and nonprofit groups working together to improve civic outcomes in Spartanburg County. The Libraries coordinate their efforts through a Community Engagement Librarian and a council. They have developed goals in civic health priority areas.  Each priority area's work is guided by a Priority Group.
