This Livability Assessment and Recommendations Report is the result of an evaluation of natural, cultural, physical (infrastructure), commercial, and economic health of the gateway community and surrounding landscape and their relationship to the six principles of livability adapted for gateway communities:
1. Provide more transportation choices for residents, workers, and visitors.
2. Promote equitable, affordable housing and lodging choices that meet the needs of residents, workers, and visitors.
3. Enhance economic competitiveness by valuing the public lands and natural, cultural, recreational, and environmental assets associated with the gateway community.
4. Support existing gateway communities and sustain their unique character.
5. Coordinate policies and leverage investments within the community and between the gateway community and public lands.
6. Value communities, neighborhoods and landscapes, and the area’s natural, cultural heritage, and recreational assets that foster social, economic, and public health.
