About Shenandoah Forum
Shenandoah Forum started in 2001 in response to the need for accurate, useful and balanced information regarding pressures for increasing growth within our community. A group of county residents and landowners came together to support community development that protects and strengthens Shenandoah County.

The Forum is committed to leadership by consensus and has successfully used this approach to educate Shenandoah County residents about growth management and planning issues.

Since 2001, Shenandoah Forum has grown into a strong voice in the community with a membership of more than 300 residents, business owners, community leaders and interested friends and a board of directors from across the county.

Shenandoah Forum continues to inform county citizens on issues relating to land-use and encourages them to participate in public hearings and opportunities for public comments on important issues within the region.

Shenandoah County is nestled in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.  Settled in the early 1700s, the county is today a primarily rural, agricultural landscape dotted with historic Main Street towns and villages.  It is bordered by the Allegheny and Massanutten mountain ranges and the George Washington National Forest.
