natural assets, including the waterfront, and by involving residents and businesses to help ensure safe and secure
neighborhoods and well-supported public safety services.
Nassau Bay will be COMMUNITY-MINDED by listening and responding to resident’s concerns, maintaining high customer
service, encouraging civic participation, and by preserving the “small town feel” of the community.

to effectively address transportation, economic development, tourism, infrastructure, security, resiliency, and quality of life
