In 2019, The City Council identified seven values which underpin all of our efforts to achieve a Sustainable City of Wellbeing. They define who we are and who we aspire to be, and will help us develop a 21st Century Government. They are:
A city that transparently acts in the best interest of the community it serves.
A city that provides all community members with access to resources and opportunities, and where differences in life outcomes cannot be predicted by race, class, gender, disability, or other identities.
A city where diversity of backgrounds, talents, and capabilities are welcomed and leveraged for learning and informing better business decisions.
A city that builds sustainable capacities to withstand and recover from adversity.
A city that thoughtfully plans for the long-term and effectively manages resources.
A city that promotes and invests in the safety of all community members.
A city that seeks out and implements cutting-edge, efficient, and effective new solutions to address challenges.
