You told us what you loved, what worried you, and what you hoped and dreamed of -- you told us what we got right and what we got wrong -- and we're so excited to share the Heart & Soul of Cameron County. Here they are, #Finally, the fully-resident-vetted Cameron County Community Value Statements -- the values residents can agree to holding near and dear to their hearts.
Cameron County values the nature that abounds within our borders, from the abiding beauty of our mountains, streams, and forests to our diverse wildlife. We appreciate the variety of recreational activities and scenic views it provides us.
Sense of Community
Cameron County values the Sense of Community created by our people and fostered by our scenic communities and the slower pace of life that make us so unique.
Cameron County values our local businesses, industries, and entrepreneurs who are the backbone of our local economy and the heartbeat of our communities, while acknowledging the potential our county offers for expanded amenities and industry.
Cameron County believes in sustaining a safe, secure, and close-knit community to live, work and play.
Cameron County values walkable communities, the safe travel between each of our municipalities and the ability to easily navigate our vast dirt road and trail system.
Arts & Heritage
Cameron County cherishes sharing our rich history and coming together to celebrate our community and artisans through year round community events, throughout county.
Cameron County values the well-being of our young, adolescent, and teenage residents. We believe in supporting their educational and athletic pursuits and are committed to offering them a variety of opportunities to participate and recreate within our county.
These values are our shared, non-negotiables as changes come to our area, as decisions are made on our behalf, and as we look toward a vibrant future. These create the common ground of our shared Cam Co Identity as residents and neighbors.
We thank you for entrusting your almost 500 stories with us, your time and thoughts and ideas as we worked toward finding the heart and soul of this county we all share, but view through 4600 different lens.
Our work is not over, though, these values are the foundation of where we're going, as we look toward prioritizing all the ideas you have to preserve, to honor, and to reinvigorate Cameron County as we draft YOUR action plan, a resident-driven and resident-envisioned, Cam Co Proud Call to Action Plan.
