MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of Citizens to Preserve Ligonier Valley is to preserve the quality of life in the Ligonier Valley so that it remains a safe, healthy, and attractive place for living, working, recreation, and tourism, for now and for generations to come.

SPECIFIC GOALS:

  • Protect our air quality for residents and visitors alike

  • Protect our drinking water, whether from municipal sources, private wells or springs

  • Preserve the quality of streams within the Loyalhanna Watershed for wildlife, recreation and for downstream communities who use it as their back-up drinking water supply

  • Keep our roads scenic and free from the overuse and damage of heavy industrial traffic

  • Preserve our Residential and Conservation districts as quiet, peaceful places to live

  • Limit industrial operations, including hydraulic fracturing, to those areas originally zoned industrial

  • Work to restore the original protective Residential/Agricultural and conservation districts in which residents purchased their property with the expectation that those zones  would remain RA and conservation districts, providing for compatible uses
