Mission: The mission of the Montgomery Countyside Alliance is to protect Montgomery County's Agricultural Reserve and thereby enhance the quality of life, health and well-being of families and communities by working for sound transportation, economic development and land use policies. The Montgomery Countryside Alliance seeks to support and celebrate Montgomery County's historic commitment to protecting the environment, open spaces, and rural and agricultural lands for current and future generations of Washington metropolitan residents.
Programs: As an advocacy organization, Montgomery Countryside Alliance, Inc. has two program areas: education and advocacy. Through our educational activities, we raise awareness among county residents on the importance of agriculture and farmland. As advocates for this rural area, the Montgomery Countryside Alliance encourages citizens to contact their elected officials on important land use and transportation issues. Through public testimony, legislative monitoring, grassroots mobilization, public education and coalition building, Montgomery Countryside Alliance, Inc. builds awareness and encourages action.
As a 20-year civic activist, I am proud to be involved with this unique and effective organization. Its mission of engaging and educating the community about our Agricultural Reserve in Montgomery County could not be more timely. A worthy organization doing tremendously important work.
Of all the many things that vie for one's time, attention, and financial support, MCA is one that continually rises to the top. Focused, uber-efficient, effective. Committed to a mission that makes a difference in quality of life in our region -- now and for the future.
