Adopted Comp Plan Value Statements

Auburn's Comprehensive Plan is organized around seven main value statements. The value statements provide a foundation and format for the Comprehensive Plan and its implementation, which includes the development of capital facilities, transportation, and parks and open space plans. The value statements also establish a basis for evaluating future City policies, regulations, actions, investment, budget priorities, grant-seeking priorities, and other community decisions. As such, the value statements can be found in the Core Plan and within each Element of the Comprehensive Plan. The manner in which each Element is consistent with the value statements of the Comprehensive Plan is provided for within each Element.

The seven value statements are:
