Identifying the Valued Ordinary, as a Step toward Scenic Landscape Conservation. Visual Resource Stewardship Conference Landscape and Seascape Management in a Time of Change.

The Georgia Scenic Byways program (GDOT, 2017) is a “grassroots effort … to identify, preserve, promote and protect treasured corridors throughout the state.” There are fifteen such corridors designated by Georgia DOT, their only protection is a restriction on roadside billboards.
