Imagine 2050 will be framed based on a sustainability framework of Economy, Environment, and Equity, aka "The 3 E's". Economy includes local economic development and workforce development.

Environment includes local intersections of all living species, climate, and resources.

Equity includes consistent, systematic, fair, and impartial treatment of all residents.

The 3 E's

Cross-Cutting Themes

When we're thinking about our 3 E's, we want to apply a number of cross-cutting themes to those conversations. Infrastructure, education, quality of life, sustainability & resiliency, and community vitality are things that have big implications for each of our pillars.
