  • Parkways, Historic and Scenic Roads Advisory Committee
    • This committee evaluates designation requests based on the established criteria.
  • Guidelines and rules
    • After the designation and approval of the new scenic road, these guidelines and rules apply to the highway to preserve the designation.
