Austin is a city that becomes increasingly efficient in solving real problems for real people by:
1. engaging stakeholders and users, 2. leading collaboratively, 3. working across disciplines, departments, and city systems; and 4. using data and integrated technologies
to transform services and improve quality of life with and for all Austinites, businesses, and visitors.
Together we strive to create a complete community where every Austinite has choices at every stage of life that allow us to experience and contribute to all of the following outcomes:
Economic Opportunity and Affordability: Having economic opportunities and resources that enable us to thrive in our community.
Mobility: Getting us where we want to go, when we want to get there, safely and cost-effectively.
Safety: Being safe in our home, at work, and in our community.
Health: Enjoying a sustainable environment and a healthy life, physically and mentally.
Cultural and Learning Opportunities: Being enriched by Austin’s unique civic, cultural, ethnic, and learning opportunities.
Government that works: Believing that city government works effectively and collaboratively for all of us—that it is equitable, ethical and innovative.
Our leadership team is thrilled with the results! We were able to successfully identify three winning solutions. The diversity of the innovators was so refreshing, we get how our solutions can literally live anywhere in the world.
