RISE Logo and Initiative 2018-2026
The RISE Logo is a graphic representation of our aspiration to RISE to the expectations of our community.
There are TWO simple guiding principles of this administration:
Taking care of what we have; and
- Innovation:Finding new ways to modernize our systems or processes to create efficiencies and cost-effectiveness
With that strategic direction in mind, we have identified six keys to success:
- Our Mobility:
Our goal is to ensure we have safe roads for all modes of transportation and eco-friendly options to travel through our daily lives.
- Our Home:
Our goal is to have safe and decent housing for local residents, where our public spaces are a welcoming and inclusive gathering place for all.
- Our Connections:
We understand that excellent public service is the outcome of a caring person in a working environment that supports teamwork and continuous improvement.
- Our Money:
Public funds are used carefully to meet our needs. We account for every dollar and invest wisely for our future.
- Our Freedom:
To enjoy what life in our community has to offer and we take responsibility to engage one another with empathy and respect.
- Our Heart:
We are supported to discover our best selves as a community.
