Community Covenant

Community is a shared journey. In order to sustain a personal commitment to quality of life, each member of the community is called upon to act, individually and collectively, so that certain modes of interaction are upheld.

These values include:

I will protect the safety of both persons and property.

I will maintain respect for the dignity of each person.

I will maintain personal accountability for my decisions and choices.

I will safeguard the practice of free and open expression without risk of ridicule.

I will safeguard personal integrity.

I will accept the laws of responsible citizenship.
