  2. value education and extra-curricular activities for children and support our schools;
  3. openly welcome residents of all ages, incomes, cultures, and viewpoints;
  4. can support a variety of thriving area businesses;
  5. partner with businesses and organizations to foster our mission;
  6. collaborate with other neighborhoods on issues of mutual concern;
  7. have access to a variety of recreational spaces;
  8. feel safe and comfortable in our homes, walking, riding a bicycle, using public transportation, and driving a vehicle, where streets are pleasant public places;
  9. practice responsible stewardship of our own spaces and of the natural habitat around us, so that the people, animals, and plants can all thrive in a healthy balance.
