Respecting all and valuing all, we support the coming together as one community. Our considerations and decisions are made in the best interests of our district as a whole

We will work hard to develop and hold the trust of our community by acting with integrity and transparency in our dealings.
We will be visionary in thinking, pragmatic in our decisions and professional in our execution as we deliver the best outcomes for our community. We will embrace innovation and creativity in our pursuit of quality and sustainability. We will continuously explore ways to improve.
