another example of the wonderful people of Ligonier Valley

"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 RA 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"!mission/csgz
