Governance 

Governance

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:

Accountability

A city that transparently acts in the best interest of the community it serves.

Equity

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.

Inclusion

A city where diversity of backgrounds, talents, and capabilities are welcomed and leveraged for learning and informing better business decisions.

Resilience

A city that builds sustainable capacities to withstand and recover from adversity.

Stewardship

A city that thoughtfully plans for the long-term and effectively manages resources.

Safety

A city that promotes and invests in the safety of all community members.

Innovation

A city that seeks out and implements cutting-edge, efficient, and effective new solutions to address challenges.
