Advance the vision of local residents and businesses
Encourage appropriate growth and promote economic development
Balance development rights with sound planning principles 
Preserve natural resources while considering community resiliency and the impacts of sea level rise
Ensure that regulations are easy to understand and administer
Establish the right amount of regulation to address local needs
