BOTETOURT COUNTY (WSLS 10) - Botetourt County is hoping to be part of the Roanoke Valley Regional Greenway Commission.

The county is in the planning stages of creating a greenway.

In order for the county to be part of the regional commission, it first needs approval.

Several localities like Roanoke and Vinton will be voting on whether to accept Botetourt County this month.

If local governments say yes, Botetourt County will join the commission July 1.

A Botetourt County spokesperson said the advantages of being part of the commission include having a voice and a vote to the regional planning efforts.
