The program aims to inform decision making in the context of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and in terms of maintaining and improving the scenic quality of the State of Colorado.

The Visual Resource Program is striving to be the preeminent transportation visual resource program, while improving the urban and rural scenic integrity of the State of Colorado.
