Striving to preserve a unique sense of place that pays tribute to and values natural, historic and cultural assets of Nevada.


What “scenic” means to us

  • Natural beauty in the environment, landscapes and streetscapes
  • Historical and cultural resources
  • Striking approaches and settings
  • Residential, commercial and native trails and walkways
  • Scenic road systems.


What we stand for

Nevada is unique for its landscapes and open spaces, from the Sierra Nevada mountains to the desert plains of the Mojave.

We believe that communities can plan residential and commercial spaces to compliment nearby scenic areas open to outdoor recreation. Communities also can use strong sign control to protect scenic vistas along roadways. Scenic Nevada helps ensure that growth includes preservation of the scenic beauty that contributes to the economic vitality of Nevada.
