Obsessed with creating community, meaning and legacies
Life is short and we only get one chance at it, which is why we are obsessed with being a city that is creating community, meaning and legacies – in our city, in our neighborhoods, and in our lives.
Our more than 850 employees aren’t just focused on the services we provide; we are proactively and relentlessly focused on you.
More than just world class services
Sure, our core services are world class – but we know these things are meaningless if we aren’t also creating a community and a place where you can belong, be happy and find fulfillment.
Neighborhoods where you can both live a life free of crime and have access to the highest quality education.
Opportunities for all cultures to contribute to and enrich our unique city.
Ecosystems of thriving businesses, large and small.
Spaces filled with beautiful infrastructure and art.
Hours spent enjoying your life – not sitting in traffic commutes to get to a far away job.
Environments you are proud of and where you can connect with neighbors and community groups – ultimately realizing that a fulfilled life is being a part of, and contributing to, something bigger than ourselves.
Chasing dreams, focusing on the future
It is a privilege to be able to provide the highest quality of life to those who trust us with the livelihoods they live here. We balance stewarding the investments you make in your family through your hard-earned tax dollars with knowing that every dollar we save you is another dollar you can invest in your family.
We aren’t afraid of change, hard decisions or pushing the envelope and taking the right risks to ensure that we continue to innovate and get better with age – knowing that, while these risks are funded with taxpayer dollars and we will sometimes fail, there is an ultimate and greater return on investment as we fundamentally reimagine municipal services and reinvent the relationships residents have with their city.
Rooted in entrepreneurialism and with a non-stop focus on the future, we want to be a city that the private sector looks to for inspiration – recognizing that we don’t just chase other cities, we chase dreams.
Fulfilling a call to public service
And while it may seem unorthodox to publicly acknowledge our employees so boldly, we are a different kind of city because of the people we hire – and our people, and their families, matter. Our employees don’t just come to work for the city; they fulfill a sense of calling to public service – and they are the backbone of everything we do.
As they work non-stop for you – hard-working and forward-thinking, we work non-stop for them – celebrating their work and investing in life-giving growth opportunities to empower their passions so they can more passionately, fearlessly and authentically serve you.
