Las Piñas is envisioned to be a progressive city and responsive to the needs of its residents but remain a caring, warm community that is ideal for raising families.
The city is a “Home”, as exemplified by its official logo where a mother and child live safely inside a dwelling, in the middle of “modern progress, while still maintaining family and neighborly ties”.
In fulfillment of this vision, the City government sees its mission as consisting of three main streams:
First, the expansion of its public services: a clean and livable community, increasing the access of its residents to jobs and livelihood opportunities, especially entrepreneurship and skills development, a people- oriented and community based-health care system, free and quality elementary to college education, youth development, legal services, socialized housing and urban renewal, safety and security, utilities development and a strong system of physical infrastructure to facilitate movement and circulation within and to the environs of Las Piñas to serve the rapidly burgeoning residential and commercial areas of the city.
Second, conscious of its importance in the history and culture of Metro Manila, the “Las Piñas Historical Corridor” was launched February 28, 1997 by then Congressman now Senator Manny Villar, as the centerpiece of its Tourism Master Plan. It accentuates the nationalism over time of Las Piñeros and complements beautifully the active annual observance of critical historical events in Las Piñas of the Revolution of 1896.
Third, Las Piñas being a city, there is also a need to respond to the call of the fast changing times to upgrade the quality of its public service, developing its human resources and making its services more fast and efficient down to the barangay level.
