  • Strong economy with diverse and well-paying jobs for everyone
  • Good schools and opportunities for life-long learning
  • Accessible and affordable housing, transportation and health care
  • Broad representation by residents, public/private organizations, and local associations in planning and decision-making to realize the community's goals
  • Opportunities to promote, support, and celebrate cultural diversity
  • Policies (including laws) that promote healthy, strong and successful lives
  • Continuous evaluation of what is going well in the community and what needs to change
