Public Meeting on NHA status for the Crooked Road

August 01, 2012 | 12 am

Since its incorporation in 2005 The Crooked Road: Virginia’s Heritage Music Trail has worked with musicians, music venues, tourism agencies, Main Street programs, museums and others to promote economic development in Southwest Virginia. The Crooked Road is now seeking designation as a National Heritage Area (NHA), defined as a place “where natural, cultural, historic, and scenic resources combine to form a cohesive, nationally important landscape arising from patterns of human activity shaped by geography.”

As part of the process of seeking NHA status, The Crooked Road is holding a number of public meetings throughout the region to seek input and comments. A meeting will be held at 6:30 pm on Wednesday, August 1st in the J. Henry Kegley Room in the Bristol Public LIbrary at 701 Goode Street. The meeting is presented by The Crooked Road and the City of Bristol, with the support of Congressman Morgan Griffith and Senator Mark Warner.

The public is invited to attend and participate. Written comments may be sent by email to:
info@thecrookedroad.org or by mail to: The Crooked Road, One Heartwood Circle, Abingdon, VA 24210.
