DIRECTOR OF PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT
- Fairness: We expect our actions to be fair to all; whether meeting with a new or existing business and without preconceived notions or bias. Everyone will receive our fullest and best efforts.
- Integrity: People of the EDD will represent the City of Saco appropriately by upholding the highest degree of honor and operating in an honest and forthright manner.
- Transparency: The EDD seeks to find the balance between a level of transparency that assures stakeholders of the fairness of our actions with the discretion and confidentiality that is expected and required by the businesspeople with whom we interact.
- Openness: We begin each interaction with an open mind and a clean pad of paper. We recognize that business is not an exact science. At the EDD, we are open to the ideas of others and will work with each business to help it reach its goals. It is our intent to provide businesses and entrepreneurs with the tools and assistance to compete effectively on the global level in the new economy.
