The City is asking residents, “What are Claremont’s Core Values?” The answers to this question will be used by the City to create a City Mission Statement, Vision Statement, and list of Core Values.
Each year, the City Council holds a workshop to set priorities. This year, the Council will be changing the focus of the workshop to create new Mission and Vision Statements, using the list of Core Values. These will be used to guide the development of projects, programs, and services that help the City address its priorities in 2019 and beyond.
The community is encouraged to be a part of this process, which will culminate with the Council Workshop on January 29, 2019. In the months leading up to the workshop, City staff will be gathering feedback from the community at City events, online, and through social media.
Residents, businesses, and visitors are also encouraged to use the hash tag #ClaremontCoreValues on social media to post photos of things you value. The City will also be working with the school district to get students involved.
