Community Development Earns Annual VDOT Award

Each year, the VDOT Salem District presents an award for the Locality of the Year. This year the award was given to the jurisdiction that performed the best in regards to "Locally Administered Projects". These types of projects include Smartscale, Revenue Sharing and Transportation Alternatives, to mention a few.

The winning locality must be active in training, meetings, funding acquisition, project delivery, and keeping projects on budget. All of these elements of project management are put into a competitive equation and the locality with the highest total score is named the winner.

Congratulations to the Salem Employees responsible for Salem’s applicable projects: Chuck VanAllman, Will Simpson, Josh Pratt, and Matt King.
