Why are community values important?

No community can truly be “prosperous and healthy” without a well-developed value system embodied by those fashioning and conducting the community’s “business.”

The Community Values have been widely adopted in the Fresno community as key components for effective and sustainable community evolution, and reflect the essence of some of our most effective community players and leaders.

Operating within this value system is perhaps the only hope to productively engage in the enormously complex and disparate work needed to produce good results.
