Today we are very excited to announce our below mission statement, vision, values and core beliefs as approved by our executive board yesterday. Check it out and then fill out the form below to let us know if you're with us in the fight.
Believe in Syracuse
We believe Syracuse is a city on the rise and our mission is to retain and attract people to Syracuse. We will do this by promoting our message and engaging residents in neighborhood, professional development and volunteering programs.
We envision a Syracuse with a growing population & more vibrant connected neighborhoods allowing Syracuse to compete in the global economy.
We are inclusive, non-partisan, non-religious and resident-centric.
