Our conversation today with Tyler Hinkle, Shenandoah County's Planner is part of an ongoing series following the work on Shenandoah 2045 - Shenandoah County's comprehensive plan. The planning process will unfold over the course of four years with the majority of the community collaboration occurring from 2020-2022, with input in 2023-2024.

Jenna French, Director of Tourism & Economic Development and Brenna Menefee, Zoning & Subdivision Administrator for Shenandoah County joined us to talk about the future of business in Shenandoah County. 

The group gave me details for their Development Review Committee which helps businesses of all sizes and age to gather the needed information to start, expand, or relocate a business in Shenandoah County. Brenna told us of all the resources available to help a business gain access to departments within the county as well as other agencies such as VDOT and the Health Department.

We talked about why zoning is important and how it came to be practiced in Shenandoah County as well as the things to consider when determining where to locate your business.
