Local Government Commission Membership Pledge

The Local Government Commission is a nonpartisan group of local elected officials, city/county government staff and associated professionals who share a deep and abiding commitment for transforming our communities into better places to live.

We are committed to leadership in advancing policies and implementation that link sustainable, equitable development with economic growth.

From revitalizing our main streets and downtowns, to preserving open space and the character of our rural communities, we believe long-term economic success, socially equitable opportunities and environmental sustainability are created by building healthy, resource-efficient access to jobs, housing, food, open space, services and education for everyone.

We support investing in our existing communities and creating healthy, vibrant places where everyone can live, work and play; where seniors can safely age in place and where the needs of the underserved are addressed so that all residents can enjoy a high quality of life. Such communities are not only great places to live, they attract businesses and create jobs, thereby boosting economic growth and prosperity.

As an advocate for smart growth, I believe the smart growth principles outlined in the Ahwahnee Principles) work to achieve these outcomes and I accept the invitation to become a member of the Local Government Commission.
