A sense of security and safety affects the quality of life and the ability to enjoy life to its fullest. Personal safety determines how residents socialize and participate in their neighborhoods and city.
Leadership that reflects the rich diversity of our community helps to strengthen a culture of citizen engagement. The more people feel connected to others, the more vibrant and resilient they are, both individually and collectively.
Arts and culture inspire and help to fuel innovation. Arts and culture are a critical component of a successful community; drawing the best and brightest residents to bring vitality.
A healthy economy is the engine of prosperity. Quality of life, in all its aspects, is greater for all residents when the economy is strong. Businesses and residents have greater resiliency when the economy is robust and vibrant.
Strong and vibrant communities provide a wide variety of opportunities for secure, well-paid work. Safe, accessible well-paying jobs will help attract and retain a talented pool of workers.
Education and prosperity are closely linked. Successful communities offer residents abundant, affordable, and flexible opportunities to learn.
Shelter is a basic human right. Housing for everyone needs to be available and affordable.
A large gap between high and low income families can affect health, crime, and productivity as well as individual and community prosperity.
Clean air and water, uncontaminated soil, and green spaces are essential to healthy living.
Social and economic inequalities, lifestyle choices, and access to services have a major impact on people’s mental and physical health.
Nonprofits meet the needs of our residents when no one else will. They are also an important part of our economy and they stimulate innovative thinking.
Generosity transforms the giver as well as the receiver. Collective giving makes a bigger difference and strengthens a sense of community.
