We're a community that shares in your values. We work to live our core values in everything we do: we’ll be honest and transparent (even when it’s tough), we’ll be fair, we’ll share in and work towards success, we’ll be welcoming, and when it comes down to it we care. We’re not the city, we’re the un-city.
