Regional Commission Meetings – August 22, 2024
The Roanoke Valley-Alleghany Regional Commission (RVARC) hosts its meetings to address various regional issues and planning initiatives, fostering collaboration among member governments. These meetings, typically held at the RVARC office at 313 Luck Avenue, SW, Roanoke, VA, are an essential platform for discussion and decision-making on regional matters.
The meetings bring together representatives from the Counties of Alleghany, Botetourt, Craig, Franklin, and Roanoke, as well as the Cities of Covington, Roanoke, and Salem, and the Towns of Clifton Forge, Rocky Mount, and Vinton. They usually commence with a call to order, roll call, and introductions, followed by the approval of the agenda and previous meeting minutes. The agenda often includes reports from the Executive Director, financial updates, and discussions on various regional programs and initiatives.
Key items on the agenda can range from locality highlights to updates on important projects such as the Chesapeake Bay Work Program or the New River Valley Passenger Rail Authority. These meetings are an opportunity for member governments to collaborate on initiatives that impact the wider Roanoke Valley-Alleghany region, including transportation, environmental sustainability, and economic development.
The meetings are accessible to the public and cater to ADA compliance. For those requiring special accommodations, RVARC ensures the availability of required facilities and assistance.
