COLLABORATION: We believe that working together with groups and individuals who share similar values and goals is essential to achieving our mission.
INCLUSION: We believe that bringing residents together and tapping into their inherent talents will enhance our sense of shared community.
ADVOCACY: We will advocate for our goals at every level of government and within our community, becoming a strong voice for our mission to make Scandia a uniquely interesting and vibrant place to live and visit.
