The Greater Flagstaff community embraces the region’s extraordinary cultural and ecological setting on the Colorado Plateau through active stewardship of the natural and built environments. Residents and visitors encourage and advance intellectual, environmental, social and economic vitality for today’s citizens and future generations.
To attain the vision and community goals of the Flagstaff Regional Plan, the plan adopts the following guiding principles to promotefuture development:
Environmental, economic, cultural, and social sustainability ensure that present actions are the basis for future health and prosperity.
Natural environmental health is inherent to individual and community health, and healthy ecosystems should be nurtured.
Smart land use and design based on cohesive communities are respectful of our environment and create efficiencies that benefit community health, social interaction, commerce, and infrastructure.
Capitalizing on the innovative spirit that exists in the community will support the human, financial, and capital infrastructure needed for a sustainable and diverse economy.
Regional growth should occur in harmony with the community’s historical character, unique cultural resources, and natural environment.
All residents should be assured equal opportunities for a range of choices in housing, employment, education, health, safety, and devotion.
Regional community leaders, commerce, and residents expect transparency, accountability, and respect for each other in pursuit of our community vision.
Regional partnerships create a strong community, protect the environment, and achieve our common goals.
Underlying these principles is the premise that future growth and development should be approached in a smart and sustainable way, including the application of “smart growth” principles and a vision for a more sustainable Flagstaff.
