Vision & Commitment

Our Vision of Martin County
Consistent with its distinctive heritage, Martin County is a model of thoughtful planning and discipline, a county with a unique blend of rural and urban communities where growth is responsible and on-going, the environment is respected and protected, residents are passionate about the place they call home and change occurs as part of an orderly process.

Our Commitment
The Guardians of Martin County is a 501(c)3 organization committed to helping shape a positive future for Martin County, by educating residents about the value of balancing natural and man-made resources to enrich the quality of life in our communities.

Our Guiding Principles
We believe:
• Development should leverage the County’s current strengths, building outward from existing infrastructure and services.
• Growth is important, but how we grow is critical in our effort to avoid urban sprawl.
• Greater impact in the community will be achieved by working together with like-minded groups.
• “Live responsibly, protect our future” is the principle that enables everything we do.
