A Vision Statement (or Mission Statement) captures what community members most value about their community, and the shared image of what they want their community to become.  It inspires community members to work together to achieve the vision and is often included in a comprehensive plan.  The Town’s existing Comprehensive Plan Update includes a Mission Statement as follows:

“To guide future growth and development within the Town of Fallsburg in a manner that respects the Town’s rural character so that its unique sense of place is enhanced; its agricultural, historic, and natural resources protected; its hamlets revitalized and its social and economic vitality ensured for years to come.
