The Partnership for a Livable Roanoke Valley seeks to promote economic opportunity and a greater quality of life for all Roanoke Valley residents through the development of the Valley’s first coordinated regional plan.
The goal of this effort is to
promote economic opportunity and
a greater quality of life for all Roanoke Valley residents.
More than 50 organizations, including local governments, nonprofits, businesses and educational institutions are already involved in the Partnership. Citizen input guides our goals and informs the content of the Partnership’s regional plan – those who live in the Roanoke Valley know what is best for the Roanoke Valley.
To stimulate local economies and job creation, and to continue making the Roanoke Valley one of America’s best places to live and raise a family, we’re adopting a problem-solving approach to addressing the key issues affecting the region.
The goals of the effort include:
Invite and engage all citizens of the valley in a process to develop the valley’s first coordinated regional plan.
Identify issues and opportunities facing the valley across a number of topic areas including housing, transportation, land use, energy and the environment, economic and workforce development and health and education.
Identify priorities and goals based on what we care about and our desired future vision for the Roanoke Valley.
Create scenarios about how the Roanoke Valley could grow and prosper and achieve its fullest potential.
Define strategies needed to achieve our collective vision and indicators to help measure our progress.
Develop a Livability Plan that defines strategic initiatives to support the valley’s vision.
