In 2011, the City Council adopted the following mission, vision and value statements for the city:
"A leading community in which to live, work, and thrive."
Woodbury will continue to be a leading community where everyone has the opportunity to thrive. Through professionalism, responsive service and leadership, we will strengthen our tradition of public trust and effective resource management.
Professional – Responsive – Leaders
Critical Success Factors
The City Council has identified seven components that are essential to the success of the community. These are the guiding principles that govern the council's strategic planning for Woodbury's future. The seven components, together with the result the city wishes to achieve, are:
Woodbury residents feel safe in their person and their property. The city provides high quality, visible, protective services and works with other agencies serving our citizens to provide similarly high quality services.
- open space
- quality parks, and
- attractive neighborhoods with:
- a variety of life cycle housing options
- convenient access to a wide range of private sector services (e.g. health care), and
- convenient access to high quality discretionary public services (e.g. recreation)
The city directly implements those aspects of the physical and service environment for which it is responsible and promotes provision of desired services by other private and governmental agencies in areas outside its own responsibility.
