Review for VALLEY ADVOCATES FOR RESPONSIBLE DEVELOPMENT INC, Driggs, ID, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Valley Advocates for Responsible Development is about the process of community development at many levels and "advocates" for sound economic development consistent with Teton Valley wildlife, scenic, and human resources. VARD advocates for land use planning processes based on accurate and complete scientific and social information affecting the community as a whole, whether it relates to water or wildlife resources or the proper placement of industrial and manufacturing uses. In pursuing that goal at the micro level, VARD provides essential community resources by attending and publicizing for the community's citizens as well as their elected representatives and planning staff virtually all of the land use decisions of the County and local town govenrments. At the macro level, VARD works with national organizations on strategies and programs to integrate Teton County's development and practices with other western communities and regions facing the same task of protecting natural resources while promoting sustainable economies in difficult times. VARD's mission affects everyone and is well worth supporting and participating in.
