The Corridor Management Plan describes four main goals with corresponding objectives and strategies for managing and enhancing the Corridor. As the Corridor Management Plan moves forward, each managing partner will have different roles and responsibilities. Table 3 identifies which of the managing partners would be involved to help achieve each goal.



Washoe Valley Alliance and other community groups may also be involved in the implementation and monitoring of the Corridor Management Plan. Community engagement with the Byway is an important element of a Corridor’s success. As new projects come forward, local groups can help engage stakeholders and other community groups so that the Byway’s resources and challenges are considered. No one entity can achieve success on its own. Leveraging the human capacity of community organizations can build a strong foundation for Byway success.
