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.
