Goals to Achieve the Vision

Implementing the vision requires the commitment of multiple entities through funding, staff support, and other means. This implementation occurs across diverse but overlapping and interrelated resources. The framework of Landscapes3 takes these various resources into consideration, from our open spaces and natural features to neighborhoods and their underlying infrastructure. The steps to achieve the vision are outlined in recommendations within the goal areas of Preserve, Protect, Appreciate, Live, Prosper, and Connect.
