A Vision for Arizona

THE VISION FOR ARIZONA IS TO BE ONE OF THE BEST PLACES IN THE NATION TO LIVE A REWARDING AND PRODUCTIVE LIFE

To fulfill that promise, Arizonans must commit to these interrelated goals:

OPPORTUNITIES FOR ALL

Provide substantial and sustained support for talent of all ages and backgrounds through a top quality educational system. Enhance opportunities for Arizonans who work but remain poor by providing greater access to quality affordable housing, health care, childcare, education and improved employment opportunities.

QUALITY OF LIFE

Preserve and enhance all aspects of Arizona’s physical and cultural environment by maintaining significant open space, improving air quality, enhancing arts and culture and establishing recreational spaces throughout the state and especially within the built environment. Provide adequate infrastructure to support our growing population, including government, education, accessible health care, communications, transportation and sustainable water and energy. Improve our quality of life as the state grows.

KNOWLEDGE-BASED ECONOMY

Vigorously pursue a competitive knowledge-based economy that is among the strongest and most successful in the nation. Become a sustainable, internationally competitive “innovation” economy, supported by a world-class education system and an entrepreneurial environment that advances research, develops knowledge and generates significant venture capital investment.

HOW TO MAKE THIS HAPPEN

LEADERSHIP

Develop citizen engagement and leadership appropriate to our contemporary society that forges effective collaboration between the public and private sectors, and develops and implements long-term and short-term strategies for action. Our efforts also should include performance indicators to regularly measure progress.

INVESTMENT

Establish a tradition of investment, by public and private sources, in the people and resources required to accomplish and sustain the goals contained in this Vision.
