St. Augustine, as the nation’s oldest city, is a community of great heritage. With emphasis on tourism as its main economic driving force, the city enjoys a superior residential quality of life enhanced by a unique architectural history and an ambiance which is preserved to attract the arts, culture and a flourishing downtown business sector, St. Augustine is surrounded by thriving modern communities which recognize the importance of the historic downtown to overall economic vitality.

This is the vision statement resulting from the city’s 1995 community-wide St. Augustine Vision Planning Project, an effort involving over 200 members of the community, meeting in 10 topic driven committees over months to develop a blueprint for what they defined as a vision for St. Augustine’s future.

In the fall of 2013, the city commission launched a new visioning initiative called 2014 & Beyond. To learn more about the project, follow the links below.

Visioning 2014 & Beyond Update

 

Steering Committee gets down to work with Community Survey

When the steering committee for the city’s visioning initiative, Visioning 2014 & Beyond, met on July 21, its primary task was to review and begin to analyze the substance of the nearly 500 responses to the Community Survey.

The survey was designed to measure the pulse of the community by asking its participants how they feel about the city and how would they like to feel, what words would they use to describe St. Augustine, and to list three things they like about St. Augustine, three things they dislike, and three things that are missing from the city that they would like to see. Also, survey respondents had the opportunity asked to specify items they would like to see considered in the visioning initiative.

By breaking into five smaller groups, the 14 members of the committee present at the meeting worked with summary's prepared by city staff to facilitate the committee's review. Then, each group provided a brief summary of its findings during the review.

Survey says....

To view the survey's raw data as received by the deadline at noon on July 17, follow the links below.

  • Respondents' profile

These charts illustrate the profile of who participated in the survey and includes all respondents of the survey, both those completing it online and those submitting had copied (i.e. via fax, USPS, etc.).

 
  • Summary of responses
