The City of De Soto delivers big adventure and lifelong opportunities to its residents. Civic pride, inclusiveness, and collaboration are hallmarks of our welcoming city where responsible growth is a goal, and Government is responsive, accountable, and works in the best interest of the people.


De Soto will be a safe, vibrant, and attractive community, where people and families live, learn, work and play, and where one can take advantage of the cultural aspects of a major metropolitan area while enjoying the quality of life advantages of a non‐urban lifestyle.


The City's core values are crafted to guide and inspire organizational performance. For City officials and personnel, these values are the principals that constitute the foundation on which to base our path forward.
