New SRTC Mission & Vision Statements

With new management and a new outlook on how we do things, we thought it was time for new Mission and Vision statements as well. Our old Mission Statement made it sound like we build actual construction projects. That not being the case though, it was time for an update to our image. So, we all sat down at a staff meeting and came up with a couple options. And then our Policy Board took a crack at some wordsmithing and here's what they ended up approving at last Thursday's Board meeting:

Our Mission:

To coordinate transportation planning in the Spokane Region by providing leadership, expertise, and a forum for collaboration.

Our Vision:

SRTC is recognized for excellence in transportation planning and regional cooperation.

So, what do you think?
