Botetourt Goes Green!

Botetourt County local government offices are working to conserve our environment with Go-Green actions.

It starts with Botetourt County's Comprehensive Plan, which promotes and encourages a high standard of environmental protection and maintenance. Our policies encourage conservation easements and development that minimizes negative environmental impacts.
