Sustainable Growth Strategy

  • Rockingham County will become an even better place to live, work and recreate for its residents and for visitors, a great place to be.
  • The County will retain the essential historic attributes that make it a great place, including the clean natural environmental resources, the beauty of the farmland and mountains, the harmonious relationship between agricultural and residential land uses, the balanced and vibrant economy and the diverse yet harmonious society with many different cultures.
  • Rockingham County will allow for healthy, managed growth while protecting and capitalizing on the assets which have encouraged people to come here in the first place.
  • The actions of citizens and businesses of the County will reflect our understanding that we do not "own" the land; rather we only borrow it from our children.
  • The County will be a place where our children can live and enjoy the same and better quality of life that we have enjoyed.
