Vision & Values
MAYOR & COUNCIL
Vision: Create Georgia’s Most Compelling Community by honoring our history, building community, and creating opportunities
for citizens to engage and do business with one another every day.
Tagline: Come. Connect. Create.
The Watkinsville Way:
We will be a Connected Community. We will seek to create connections for our citizens through thoughtful design of our built environment, hosting award-winning and well attended community events, installing a modern technology infrastructure, and fostering connectivity between neighborhoods with non-automotive infrastructure.
We will honor our history while welcoming innovation and accommodating change. From public art to historic homes, we will honor our history and creativity while planning carefully for the future. Our community is anchored on a walkable historic downtown with an evolving mix of restaurants, retail shops and offices.
We will provide opportunities for all. As a welcoming and inclusive community, we will make all ages and types of citizens safe and comfortable by offering a mix of housing types, special events, and businesses that support different populations and create infrastructure that allows our citizens to age in place.
