Whether your roots are generations deep or newly planted, you are part of a community that treasures the nature around us, the neighborhoods and businesses that sustain us and our shared commitment to preserving our quality of life.
In 2008 regional leaders agreed on six desired outcomes for communities throughout the region. By embracing measurable outcomes, leaders shifted from talking about abstract concepts like "compact urban form" to focusing on things that really matter in our everyday lives. Identifying regional values ensures decisions are guided by a clear focus. The following six desired outcomes for the region were adopted by Metro Council in 2010 as part of the region's growth management policies:
People live, work and play in vibrant communities where their everyday needs are easily accessible.
Current and future residents benefit from the region's sustained economic competitiveness and prosperity.
People have safe and reliable transportation choices that enhance their quality of life.
The region is a leader in minimizing contributions to global warming.
Current and future generations enjoy clean air, clean water and healthy ecosystems.
The benefits and burdens of growth and change are distributed equitably.
