Land Use and Transportation
The scenic beauty of the Shenandoah Valley has attracted people for centuries, with its mountains, rolling farmland and historic towns. Local land use and transportation decisions play a significant role in maintaining — or diminishing — the beauty and character of the Valley.
The Alliance mobilizes citizens to get involved in planning commission, board of supervisor and city council decisions. Local planning can help protect our rural character— working farm and forest lands and historic battlefields- and encourage new growth to the Valley’s historic towns and cities.
