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 Visioning 2014 & Beyond. To learn more about the project, follow the links below.

The committee will spend part of the meeting reviewing the strategies aimed at supporting the identified goals of the vision. The four strategic goals, the accomplishments each are expected to produce, and what initial actions need to be taken have been the subject of long discussions among committee members who have routinely returned to their own neighborhoods and constituencies and gather feedback.

The vision statement developed by the committee reads:

St. Augustine will be a livable, authentic, waterfront city that builds upon its rich history and environment to enhance a distinctive community character founded on a healthy and vibrant economy, a diverse mix of people and experiences, and a valuing of its natural assets.

The four strategic goals, each with its own explanatory statement, are:

Livability
Maintain the quality of life for residents through a focus on ensuring City policies and resources enhance livability


Authenticity
Encourage and facilitate development and redevelopment in ways that are consistent with the look and feel of the various areas of the City.


Character
Maintain St. Augustine as a small residential community while protecting its historic nature and scale, distinctive neighborhoods, and physical environment.


Vitality

Secure the vitality and sustainability of St. Augustine for the future through policies and practices that support economic vitality, environmental assets and human and historic diversity.

The committee is working towards completing its work in May and presenting its final report to the City Commission in June.

All meetings of the Visioning 2014 & Beyond steering committee begin at 3:30pm in The Alcazar Room, City Hall, 75 King St, are open to the public, and are available for live and on-demand viewing at www.CoSATV.com.
