  • Delivering a process that is predictable, efficient, and understandable to the people who use it.
  • Acting as a single organization – “One-City” – in the delivery of development services, not separate departments working independently.
  • Ensuring that we protect the quality of the public and private infrastructure, the safety and integrity of the built environment, and the livability of the city.
