OVERVIEW
The annual Comprehensive Work Program is the basis for achieving the objectives and
strategies outlined in the Roanoke Valley Alleghany Regional Commissionfs Strategic Plan. The
Commission strives to maximize its limited staff and resources by developing a comprehensive
work plan based on current needs and priorities of the region.
This Work Program is a compilation of projects presented by Commission members, Chief
Administrative Officials, the Roanoke Valley Area Metropolitan Planning Organization
(RVAMPO) Policy Board, regional economic development-related organizations and staff. The
Commission and RVAMPO review and rank projects according to importance, funding
availability, staff time and other constraints. The intent is to obtain the most benefit from the
least direct cost to the local governments. Requests not included in this yearfs work program
are added to a list of potential projects for future work programs. These potential projects may
be included in next yearfs work program if the need still exists and funding is available.
The work program is revised annually and may be amended as deemed necessary by the
member governments that we serve.
