During 2018, A-NPDC staff are working with partners to update the Seaside Water Trail and develop a unique Virginia Water Trails website for the convenience of visitors and locals alike. The new tri-region collaboration, Rural Coastal Virginia (RCVA), with the Middle Peninsula and Northern Neck is focused on improving Ecotourism assets and co-promoting our similar green and blue assets. Long-term lans exist for developing a sister Bayside Water Trail that will link to the Captain John Smith Chesapeake Historic National Trail and other resources.
The new logo has been approved & the new website is live! Visit www.VirginiaWaterTrails.org, if you see anything that may need attention, please email [email protected], as the site is still actively being refined and updated.
Development of the Virginia Water Trail website, www.VirginiaWaterTrails.org, was funded by the Virginia Coastal Zone Management and the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration, and guided by the Ecotourism Steering Committee. Meeting agendas, minutes, and supplemental information can be found below.
The Accomack-Northampton Planning District Commission (A-NPDC) fully complies with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Civil Rights Restoration Act of 1987, Executive Order 12898 on Environmental Justice, and related nondiscrimination statutes and regulations in all programs and activities.
Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin in programs and activities receiving Federal financial assistance. Specifically, Title VI provides that "no person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance." (42 U.S.C. Section 2000d).
A-NPDC’s website, www.esvaplan.org, may be translated into multiple languages. Publications and other documents can be made available in alternate languages and formats upon request. A-NPDC public meetings are always held in ADA-accessible facilities and in transit-accessible locations when possible. Auxiliary services can be provided to individuals who submit a request at least seven days prior to a meeting. Requests made within seven days will be accommodated to the greatest extent possible. Any person who believes they have been aggrieved by an unlawful discriminatory practice by A-NPDC under Title VI has a right to file a formal complaint. Any such complaint may be in writing and filed with A-NPDC and/or the appropriate state or federal agency within 180 days of the alleged discriminatory occurrence.
