Parkway’s glories honored by CongressWritten by Admin
A resolution commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Blue Ridge Parkway is slated for passage by Congress.
“The Blue Ridge Parkway offers some of the most spectacular mountain views in the nation, as well as an important source of income for Western North Carolina and a convenient access point for residents and visitors to hiking, hunting and other recreational activities,” said U.S. Rep. Heath Shuler, D-N.C. “I am proud to help introduce this legislation honoring the 75th anniversary of the Parkway.”
The resolution highlights the great contributions of the Parkway to the region and the unique characteristics that attract nearly 20 million visitors to the 469-mile scenic corridor.
