The Northern Shenandoah Valley region encompasses the five counties in the northwest corner of Virginia--Clarke, Frederick, Page, Shenandoah, Warren and all jurisdictions within--as well as the City of Winchester. The NSVRC exists to bring these local governments together to pursue common goals, work together on regional issues and find efficiencies through collaboration.

The Northern Shenandoah Valley Regional Commission is one of 21 planning district commissions established by the Commonwealth of Virginia. Each commission serves a planning district, which is a political subdivision of the Commonwealth chartered under the Regional Cooperation Act. The Regional Commission is made up of elected officials and citizens appointed to the Commission by local governments. Visit the Virginia Association of Planning District Commissions to learn more.
