The value of our County roads is found in the unique visual experience they offer. The appeal to a large tourist population accounts for a substantial portion of the County's economy. The guide emphasizes that the aesthetic criteria and engineering requirements can be mutually beneficial. The goal of these guidelines is to implement rural road modifications which provide user safety, long range reduction of maintenance costs, and a roadway that is attractively integrated with the roadside and surrounding landscape.
