T OWN OF J UPITER 2010 ANNUAL REPORT AND 2011 PREVIEW 2010 continued to present economic challenges for Jupiter’s businesses and residents, and as we reach build-out, our challenges are shifting from managing new growth to creating economic growth and managing redevelopment. Moving from Growth to Creating Economic Opportunity Members of the Jupiter Town Council Mayor Karen Golonka, Vice Mayor Wendy Harrison, Councilor Robert Friedman, Councilor Jim Kuretski, and Councilor Todd Wodraska Balancing the core elements of our vision – being a coastal community with small- town values – with the challenge of creating economic opportunity, places us in new territory. Our vision will always chart our course, but must also provide us with the wide-angle view to take our community where it needs to go. We strive to be a livable community with a variety of housing types, job opportunities, recreation and leisure activities to maintain a high quality of life, without losing focus on our history, heritage, and values. The Town’s organization has changed and contracted in the last three years in order to support the vision and its application to our changing environment. In some cases, activities have been combined for greater effi ciency, and in other cases programs have been added to meet new needs. In all cases, despite a 15% reduction in overall staffi ng for the Town, we have maintained service levels and achieved greater effi ciencies in how those services are delivered. Now, as we look to the future, we will continue to evolve the organization’s structure to meet residents’ and businesses’ needs, even as those needs change and adapt to the “new normal” of our economy. With a strong focus on our core vision, and an eye on a successful future, we will continue to be “uniquely Jupiter.” Photo by Larry Hughes VISION: Jupiter is a distinctive coastal community committed to preserving its unique character and vibrant, small-town feel.
