The Virginia Land & Energy Navigator: A Decision Support Tool for Localities Balancing Natural Resource Conservation and Economic Development Interests

March 20, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Balancing economic development and natural resource conservation is important for localities, the Commonwealth of Virginia, landowners, and other interested parties. Recognizing the importance of this issue the Virginia General Assembly adopted HB894, Section 3 of which charged Virginia Cooperative Extension with leading an effort to develop a map or repository of prime farmland in consultation with relevant and necessary state agencies and other partners. This presentation will describe the process used to address this charge and provide an overview and introduction to the Virginia Land and Energy Navigator (VaLEN), a web-based resource that supports land use planning and decision-making at the local level
