People come to Montgomery County because of its renowned quality of life. Our residents value our urban centers, our agricultural communities, and our suburban neighborhoods. A clean environment along with diverse opportunities for recreation and the arts are essential elements of our quality of life. As our community changes and grows to one million people, the Leggett Administration is committed to revitalizing older communities, attracting and retaining quality businesses, providing adequate public facilities, and developing healthy and sustainable new communities based on the principles of smart growth.
