    A progressive community that offers urban services within the unassuming feel of a rural, Midwestern community.
    A community that provides opportunities for its young people in the way of jobs, education, and recreation as reasons to stay in Greensburg.
    A community where entrepreneurial spirit, customer service, and a sustainable economy permeate the business sector and where residents, travelers, and tourists enjoy a full line of locally owned businesses that provide jobs and services to
    an exceptional example of small-town America.
    A community that recognizes the importance of the natural environment and balances the need for growth and economic development with the maintenance and improvement of the environment.
    An up-to-date, affordable rural community where housing plans and strategies incorporate energy-efficient design and materials and serve as a regional and national model for integrating residents of all ages and needs with services of all kinds.
    The rebuilding process starts with the most stimulating structures and spaces. These will spawn further growth.
    A community that opens its doors to new residents and visitors without affecting the values and lifestyles of its current residents.
    A community that makes proactive decisions that use this opportunity to reverse the decline of the community and build a
    progressive city with a strong future.

    Built Environment
    Build a town that encourages interaction between residents, welcomes guests, and serves as a model community. New development should be durable, healthy, and efficient. City
    projects will lead the way by becoming examples of green practices that are built to last.
