Dublin’s mission statement serves as the City’s broadest public policy directive. Dublin City Council adopted the mission statement in 1993 to define the major impetus behind all municipal actions:
The City of Dublin strives to preserve and enhance the unique high quality offered to those who live or work in our community by providing the vision, leadership and performance standards which allow for managed growth and development. We endeavor to deliver our services cost-effectively, with an emphasis on quality and innovation. The City of Dublin seeks recognition in the field of local government as being responsive, cooperative, and culturally and environmentally sensitive, while embracing the highest standards of integrity and accountability to those we serve.
