Along with our rich natural resources, it’s the vibrant communities that make the Shenandoah Valley an exceptional place to live and visit. The small towns and cities, community hubs, and agricultural heritage contribute to the high quality of life that communities in the Shenandoah Valley enjoy.
Alliance for the Shenandoah Valley is committed to promoting economic development that is compatible with the unique resources of our region, such as agriculture and tourism, two pillars of our local economies.
Current Strong Communities Projects
Superheroes Need Good Sidekicks
Meet the comp plan—the superhero of the planning world. And, just as superheroes have to have their sidekicks, the comp plan alone can’t get the job done. Communities need several tools in their planning “toolbox” to carry out the plan’s vision.
Transportation in our rural landscapes
Now bikes and buggies can travel in a designated lane all the way to Garbers Church Road. Though it may appear so, these lanes didn’t just happen.
Share your local story.
COVID has us interacting with our community in a whole new way and has shifted our perspectives and habits. We’ve heard lots of stories of folks finding creative ways to still ‘shop local’ and we want to hear yours.
