ONE-PS Mission Statement (who we are and what we do today)
ONE-PS is a network of Palm Springs neighborhoods that gives voice to the issues and concerns of our community. We collectively seek practical solutions, and promote two-way communication between City residents and City officials on matters and events of broad civic and social interest.
Responsibility for decision-making and recommendations lies with representatives of formally certified neighborhoods. All City constituencies are potential partners, advisors, and beneficiaries.
We encourage the exchange of information and promote civic involvement. We sponsor and coordinate activities such as regular meetings, forums, task-specific work groups and social events and disseminate word of our activities primarily through these encounters and via the Internet.
Our goal is to improve the quality of life for Palm Springs residents and to enhance the experience of our visitors. Our objectives are to create an informed and engaged citizenry, to encourage pride in our City and a sense of responsibility for it and to strengthen the City's overall economic and competitive standings.
We believe organized neighborhoods empower Palm Springs.
ONE-PS Vision Statement (what we aspire to in the future)
ONE-PS aspires to be the broadly recognized and generally accepted consensus voice of the residents of Palm Springs.
We will be an increasingly visible and identifiable organization, providing all geographic areas within the City experienced leadership and effective representation for the benefit of our community.
We will be a sought-after resource for information, opinion and perspective on matters of interest to Palm Springs and thereby have an impact on decisions affecting our City.
Our events will be eagerly anticipated, well-attended and fully staffed with motivated volunteers. Our composition will be as inclusive and as diverse as our City.
Our impact on the community will help attract new residents to move here and businesses to establish or relocate here. We will be part of the welcome on their arrival.
We will be a component of the overall Palm Springs "brand," contributing to our City's appeal, recognition and stature throughout the state, the nation and the world.
