These principles guide our work and values through the comprehensive 4-point Approach, as we move forward incrementally, putting quality above quantity, encouraging public and private partnerships and changing attitudes through success while focusing on existing assets. We continue to honor our roots as a self-supporting municipal improvement district, while accepting the fact change does not occur overnight. We evaluate our projects through our mission and vision statements, maintaining our core values to create the highest quality impact for our community.
