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 Visioning 2014 & Beyond. To learn more about the project, follow the links below.
When the Visioning 2014 & Beyond steering committee meets on Monday March 30, it will continue to fine tune the goal statements as a critical part of its ultimate work of developing a clear and concise vision statement for the City of St. Augustine.
At its last meeting, the committee worked on further development of the statement better defining Livability; on Monday, the committee will discuss and develop a statement for the goal of Sustainability/Vitality.

During its last meeting, the committee agreed on a revised draft of the vision statement. While more revisions and tweaking is likely, the current version reads:
St. Augustine will be a livable, authentic, waterfront city that builds upon its rich history and environment to enhance a distinctive community character founded on a healthy and vibrant economy, a diverse mix of people and experiences, and a valuing of its natural assets.
The committee's remaining meetings will continue to focus on the other two identified goals for the city’s vision: Character and Authenticity.
All meetings of the Visioning 2014 & Beyond steering committee begin at 3:30pm in The Alcazar Room, City Hall, 75 King St, are open to the public, and are available for live and on-demand viewing at www.CoSATV.com.
