The City of Carlsbad engaged the community in a process called Envision Carlsbad, an intensive two-year process to identify the community‚Äôs hopes and aspirations for the future of their city. Since its adoption in 2010, the vision has been used to help guide City Council goals and other city decision making. 

Core values

The Carlsbad Community Vision is made up of nine core values. The city checks in with the community on these values through surveys and meetings to make sure they still ring true and measure progress.

The Carlsbad Community Vision was created through workshops, public meetings, surveys, a citizens committee and other public engagement efforts involving thousands of community members from throughout Carlsbad. The nine core values of the Community Vision now guide city decision making, including the new General Plan, approved September 22, 2015, and city budget priorities.
