Mission, Vision, Values, and Core Strategies

One of the most important actions any organization can take is to establish a strong focus on what they want to be and how they are going to get there. With this in mind the City Council has placed importance and merit into updating a mission statement, vision statement, values, and core strategies for the City. 


The City of Corcoran will provide high-quality public services in a cost-effective, responsible, and professional manner in order to create a preferred environment to live, work, play, and conduct business.


The City of Corcoran will become a vibrant, connected community while preserving its natural character and agricultural roots.


Honesty, Ethics, Integrity
We believe that honesty, ethics, and integrity are the foundation blocks of public trust and confidence.

Community Pride and Partnership
We believe in creating a strong sense of community through partnerships with civic organizations, school districts, and local businesses.

Efficient and Effective Service Delivery
We believe providing services to residents and businesses in an efficient and effective manner makes government easier to work with and creates a business-friendly environment.

Community Safety
We will protect the community by maintaining or improving safety through police and fire protection and by investing and maintaining the infrastructure of the City.

Fiscal Responsibility
We believe that the prudent stewardship and opportunistic investment of public funds is essential for confidence in government and to position the City for future success.

We believe that open, honest, and proactive communication is essential for an informed and involved citizenry. Processes and decision making should proactively inform and educate citizens in order to receive feedback.

Responsible Decision Making
We believe it is the responsibility of the City to address difficult issues now in order to avoid larger more difficult issues in the future.


-Enhance Corcoran's sense of place and identity
-Provide diverse community amenities and recreational opportunities
-Maintain excellence in safety and security for our community
-Ensure high-quality, market-driven growth

While the City has taken a very big step in adopting these items, significant effort and dedication is required to make it a reality. Each will be incorporated into the decision making process as well as the organizational culture.

We sincerely look forward to working on the implementation of these important items and the discussion they promote. If you have comments please contact Michelle Friedrich at 763-400-7031 or  [email protected].
