About Us

YourCity & the Asset HealthScore Framework was born out a need to solve one of the biggest challenges local governments face today, how to bridge their asset funding gap? We have successfully solved this problem & are now super excited to have the opportunity to share it with others.

Before I get into how we created this solution, I wanted to take a moment to share with you where we started & how we got to where we are today.

My name is Cory, I am the CEO at YourCity.

I got my first job as a local government employee where I had the opportunity to build their first asset management & long-term financial strategy. At the end of the project, I was hooked & knew I wanted to learn more.

In pursuit of learning more, I moved to consulting and was blessed with the opportunity to work with one of the best consulting companies around. While working in consulting I focused on developing and growing their asset management practice, where I had the opportunity to learn more about the specific challenges local governments face. In particular, I noticed 4 common challenges:

1. Plans focus on life cycle funding forecasts which suggest on average you need to double taxes to bridge your asset funding gap which as you can relate, is unrealistic.

2. Plans lacked the ability to easily show the impact funding decisions today have on future risk & level of service.  

3. Asset Management Plans & Long-Term Financial Strategies were not integrated which lead to unfunded plans.

4. Traditional approaches over complicate everything, don’t build on top of existing processes & focus on manual labor. 

It was really experiencing these challenges first-hand, meeting the right people at the right time & some friendly encouragement from my clients that inspired me to join the YourCity team at which point I made it our sole mission to figure out how to solve these challenges.

We knew that we wanted to build the best possible solution but knew that we couldn't do it alone; we formed a client advisory board made up of small & medium sized local governments & set out with the goal of building the best possible solution & eliminating these challenges. 
We stood back and reflected on all the things that we learnt while working with 70+ local governments & the advice given to us by our client advisory board.

Instead of just creating a new or similar solution, we wanted to create something truly innovative that solved our clients deepest frustrations.  We also wanted to create a movement that would empower local government leaders to take action & see a clear, simple path forward. Instead of measuring progress on profits, we wanted measure progress on the number of local government partners we helped leave their community better than they found it.

After countless hours working with our client advisory board & team, we are have emerged on the other side of a journey which was one of the most difficult things we have done. This journey was worth every second because we now have a proven framework & set of tools that is changing the way local governments think about asset management & long-term financial planning. It provided us the opportunity to help our clients leave their community better than they found it. We have seen our clients, time & time again bridge their asset funding gap & steer their organization onto the path of long-term financial sustainability, just like clockwork. This has been truly amazing to see & has been one of the best feelings in the world!

I would love if you would take a few minutes out of your day to book a call with me or one of my team members to learn more. I promise you will walk away with a completely new perspective.

My Name is Cory, CEO of YourCity.

I would love to take a moment to share my story so you can learn more about me and our company.

I took engineering at UBC, got my first job as a local government employee in 2012 where I had the opportunity to build their first asset management plan. I knew nothing but learnt a ton through the process. At the end of the project, I was hooked & knew I wanted to learn more.

In pursuit of learning more, I moved to consulting and was blessed with the opportunity to work with one of the best consulting companies around. While working in consulting I focused on developing and growing an asset management practice where I had the opportunity to work with 70+ City Leaders to build asset management & financial plans as well as learn more about the problems City's face.

Not only did I get to learn about these challenges, so did the clients I served. It was really experiencing this first hand, meeting the right people at the right time & some friendly encouragement from clients that inspired us to embark on a journey with the goal of removing the frustrations with traditional asset management planning & really became the sole focus of YourCity.
We knew that we could not overcome these challenges alone so we developed a client advisory board made up of small & medium sized local governments & set out with the goal of eliminating these challenges & developing the best solution possible.

 
Our team & the advisory board went to war on asset management & long-term financial plans. Going into this, we understood many companies could develop an asset management & financial plan but noticed that very few enabled change, which bothered us and drove our; late nights, countless conversations and passion for developing the best possible solution.

We knew that we wanted to do the exact opposite of everyone and do things differently.
Instead of just creating a solution, we wanted to create a movement that would change the way local governments view asset management & long term financial planning. Instead of profits, we wanted to empower our clients to leave their community better than they found it.

We stood back and reflected on all the things that I learn't while working with 70+ local governments focusing on what worked and didn't work.

After countless hours we are have emerged on the other side of a journey that was one of the most difficult things we have done BUT we are excited to share that we have successfully eliminated the challenges with traditional asset management plans & we are so excited to now have the opportunity to share this with others.

We have started a movement of people who believe together we can create a Lasting Legacy that will support a financially sustainable future.

We call these leaders, LegacyBuilders.

We know that we can not do this ourselves and that it requires a group of LegacyBuilders (thats you) to come together. So we encourage you to reach out to learn more and I promise you will walk away with a completely different perspective on asset management & long-term financial planning.
