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.
Current Land Use and Transportation Projects
Shenvalee Solar Project
We know that solar is part of the transition to renewable energy, and, done right, it can be compatible with and even complement our agricultural region.
Shenandoah Valley Golf Club Public Hearing
The community held an informational meeting to discuss the Shenandoah Valley Golf Club rezoning and what it would mean for Rockland.
Getting it right with solar
With the right local and state guidelines in place, we hope to see solar projects in the Shenandoah Valley that minimize negative impact and even benefit local communities.
