VISION -  Enhance the quality of life in Carver County with safe, congestion free travel, and exceptional recreational opportunities.

MISSION - To construct and maintain a safe and efficient highway system and provide a quality well managed parks and trail system.

The Carver County Public Works Division administers all functions associated with the county highway and the county parks systems.  The Division is comprised of departments of Administration, Program Delivery, and Operations which are budgeted in the Road and Bridge Fund.  Consistent with State guidelines, the Parks Department is budgeted in the General Fund and is reported separately from the other three departments.  The Public Works Division maintains a functional working relationship with the Carver County Regional Rail Authority, a board that oversees designated rail transportation corridors in Carver County.
