FRANKLIN COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) – Officials in Roanoke County are no longer alone in asking Congress to pass the Restore Our Parks Act.

Supervisors in Franklin County have joined in the plea.

The Restore Our Parks Act would address a multi-billion dollar backlog in maintenance requests in National Parks around the country and along the Blue Ridge Parkway.

They passed a resolution unanimously on Tuesday, stating that recent issues that forced a closure along parts of the Blue Ridge Parkway are just a small part of overdue repairs in the park’s system that brings thousands of visitors to the Blue Ridge and surrounding communities.
