Vision Statement & CEDS Goals

The CEDS Committee developed the following Vision Statement and Goals:

Recognizing the critical importance of maintaining and nurturing our natural environment and diverse cultural heritage, the Lakes Region Community will strive to improve the quality of life of its cities and towns through the increased capacity and prosperity of its businesses, civic, social, and education institutions, and its citizens. All our efforts will be characterized by respect, communication, cooperation and integration with others and will exhibit stewardship toward our magnificent natural resources.

Our personal consumer choices have ecological, social, and spiritual consequences. It is time to
re-examine some of our deeply held notions that underlie our lifestyles.
