First, our Vision:
With America the Beautiful as our heritage, hard work as our foundation, and western optimism as our guide, Colorado Springs will be a successful city where people love to live, work and vacation.
Second, our Mission:
As stewards of the public trust, we will serve the people of Colorado Springs with core services effectively and efficiently through the wise use and management of our resources.
Our success will be measured by achieving three goals:
Support an increase in private sector civilians employed by an average of 6,000 per year by being the most business and citizen friendly city of our size in the United States of America.
Transform City Government to be fiscally sustainable within limited resources while delivering consistent quality core services.
Build community through on-going dialogue with our citizens and local, regional and state leaders; and by encouraging private sector and nonprofit initiatives to improve the well-being of everyone.
