Community Development

Ben Shepherd will push to revitalize Roanoke County so it is livable and accessible for all our citizens. Projects like Reimagine 419 should include wide sidewalks, greenspaces, abundant lighting, bike lanes, and mass transit accessibility. Thoughtful revitalization will improve the quality of life for citizens and attract new businesses to the region. As both a Millennial and caregiver to his 92-year-old grandfather, Ben understands how important these issues are to both the young and old.
