Mission: Through visionary leadership and good stewardship, we will administer state requirements, ensure public safety, determine county needs and provide services to continually enhance quality of life.
Vision: Our vision for Cabarrus is a county in which our children learn, our citizens participate, our dreams matter, our families and neighbors thrive, and our community prospers.
Core Values: Board members identified four core values to guide how county government should carry out its mission:
- Integrity (Principled)
The Board of Commissioners continued its strategic planning process by providing descriptions of its established core values and by refining its five goals, with 1-year, 2-year, and 3- to 5-year outcomes for each goal statement. These outcomes include initiatives that will support and achieve each goal.
County departments implement strategies and performance measures to achieve these goals in addition to identifying budget, policy, resource and timeframe implications of achieving these goals. County resources are prioritized based on the extent each county program or service is related to the Board's chosen outcomes. Therefore, performance measurement is tied into the budget each year.
