The Plan's Core Values (so far!)

Climate Resilient. Prioritize goals that mitigate climate change impacts and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to keep the City safe. Emphasize sustainability by rapidly shifting our energy profile to renewable and carbon-free sources and increasing energy efficiency. Promote clean air, clean water, historic conservation, environmental conservation, and recreational space for all residents.

South Burlington also holds high the following values, in every action we take as a community.

Inclusive, Fair, and Just. Be equity-oriented, transparent, and fiscally responsible in governance. Support high quality of life, public safety, housing affordability, and education for people of varying incomes, lifestyles, and stages of life.

Thoughtful and Sustainable Built Environment. Invest in a welcoming and walkable built environment, thriving neighborhoods, and a vibrant, pedestrian-oriented City Center. Build community through housing, parks, facilities, and infrastructure. Support a safe, resilient, and varied transportation system that promotes our built areas.

Collaborative and Engaged. Be a leader and collaborator in the regional and statewide community. Support the City's role as an economic engine for Vermont by encouraging community businesses and local job creation. Make decisions considering future implications on tomorrow's South Burlington, Chittenden County, and Vermont.
