AccountabilityClarityEasy to understand: An agreement with clear, simple language and a limited number of goals is easy for the community to understand, even for people who are not immersed in policy details.

AccountabilityEnforcementClear aims and compliance: The evaluation of benefits should be quantitative where possible, so there is no disagreement about whether they’ve been provided. The USNC board should select a specific group to monitor compliance.
Somerville YIMBYs
21
AccountabilitySMART GoalsNarrowly targeted: The CBA should encompass only benefits that are not provided for in other regulations. For example, inclusionary zoning and snow removal, while important, don’t belong in the agreement. Keeping it simple makes it easier to understand, communicate, and enforce.
