  • Advocate for more efficient, accessible, accountable, and responsive local government.

  • Promote economic and housing development, job creation, and transformative placemaking.

  • Advance land use, zoning, environmental, and transportation policies that enhance livability, promote healthy living, and encourage community interaction and recreation.
