  • Inclusive - everyone will have a seat at the table, every constituent will be heard, and every employee will be valued
  • Innovation - we will embrace new technologies, new ideas, and creative partnerships to implement effective solutions and improve constituent services
  • Intentional Equity - we will incorporate equity into all policies, to ensure that our growth benefits our entire community
  • Informed Decision Making - we will be guided by best practices, facts, science and our city's history.
