Roane Alliance

Roane County was one of the first counties in the Tennessee Valley to be designated as a Silver Level Sustainable Community through the TVA Valley Sustainable Communities Program.   Roane County was awarded the Silver Level in 2013 and re-designated in 2016 and remains at this level today.   This award recognized Roane County's community-wide sustainable efforts.  The Roane Alliance led Roane County's participation in cataloging Roane County's sustainable assets to increase the community's competitiveness when companies are looking to invest in new or expanded locations in the valley.  Roane County was evaluated in key areas such as sustainability preparedness and education; economic vitality; environmental and societal commitment and even health and wellness efforts. 

Sustainable economic development balances the need for economic growth with environmental and societal accountability.  It ultimately offers benefits across a triple bottom line to ensure a healthy environment, a thriving community and economic prosperity or the three p's - planet, people and prosperity.
