The Brandywine Valley National Scenic Byway was designated in 2005 as Delaware’s first (and thus far, only) National Scenic Byway. In recognition of its unique historic, cultural and scenic qualities, this bill establishes a permanent, interdisciplinary advisory board – Brandywine Valley National Scenic Byway Advisory Board – to assist policymakers and other stakeholders in preserving, maintaining and enhancing the National Scenic Byway. To ensure broad representation and expertise, the Board will be comprised of representatives from state, local and county governments, civic associations, conservation groups, tourism officials, business representatives and other stakeholders. Among other things, the Board will review and participate in the development of regulations and laws that impact the Byway; assist in securing funding to operate programs to enhance and preserve the Byway; and participate in the update and implementation of the Corridor Management Plan. In addition, the Board shall submit a biennial report of its activities and accomplishments to the General Assembly.
