St. Augustine, as the nation’s oldest city, is a community of great heritage. With emphasis on tourism as its main economic driving force, the city enjoys a superior residential quality of life enhanced by a unique architectural history and an ambiance which is preserved to attract the arts, culture and a flourishing downtown business sector, St. Augustine is surrounded by thriving modern communities which recognize the importance of the historic downtown to overall economic vitality.

This is the vision statement resulting from the city’s 1995 community-wide St. Augustine Vision Planning Project, an effort involving over 200 members of the community, meeting in 10 topic driven committees over months to develop a blueprint for what they defined as a vision for St. Augustine’s future.

In the fall of 2013, the city commission launched a new visioning initiative called 2014 & Beyond. To learn more about the project, follow the links below.

Visioning 2014 & Beyond Update

Next step: Start to identify goals

With the raw data in hand, collected through nearly 500 respondents to a community survey, the Visioning 2014 & Beyond steering committee will take the first steps to identify the community’s desired goals for St. Augustine’s future during its meeting on Augus4 4.


The meeting will be in The Alcazar Room, City Hall starting at 3:30pm. The meeting is open to the public and will be streamed live at www.CoSATV.com. The meeting’s agenda and related material is available under the Visioning Resources below.


The community survey, conducted during early July and open to all members of the public, was designed to measure the pulse of the community by asking how people feel about the city and how would they like to feel, what words would they use to describe the city. They were also asked to list three things they like about St. Augustine, three things they dislike, and three things that are missing from the city that they would like to see. Also, survey respondents had the opportunity to specify items they would like to see considered in the visioning initiative.


Nearly 500 surveys were completed and returned during the nine day window to participate in the survey. All of the survey results and a general profile of the respondents is available by clicking here.


During the committee’s last meeting on July 21, the 14 members present divided into five smaller groups and worked with survey’s data after which each group provided a brief summary of its findings. Herb Marlowe, the visioning program’s facilitator, will lead the committee in a number of activities at Monday’s meeting intended to help the group start to identify the community’s desired goals.


Following the August 4 meeting, the steering committee will host a Town Hall where its work thus far will be presented to the community and the community will have the opportunity to provide input. The Town Hall meeting will be on Monday, August 18 at 5:30pm at the Willie Galimore Center, 399 Riberia St. The public is encouraged to attend and participate.
