How Scenic America, through its grassroots efforts of conservation and scenic beauty is helping shape legislative and impact policymakers at the state and federal levels.


  • Mark Falzone was selected to serve as President of Scenic America in April 2017.  Since his arrival, Scenic America has increased its investment in lobbying, research, communications, and additional tools to further the organization’s mission. As a result, for the first time in its history, in 2019 Scenic America authored and passed a bill through Congress to revive the National Scenic Byways Program. Scenic America also led the way to ensure that the byways program received its first dedicated funding in nearly a decade, securing a total of $42 million for the program in the FY 21, 22, and 23 appropriations acts.
  • Under Mark’s leadership, Scenic America also made additional progress in its campaigns for the undergrounding of utility infrastructure. The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, signed into law in November 2021, includes support for three undergrounding- related provisions championed by Scenic America.
  • For its significant accomplishments in the revival of the scenic byways program, Scenic America was recognized by the America Society of Association Executives (ASAE) with the 2020 “Power of A” Gold Award. Scenic America won a second “Power of A” Gold Award in 2021 for its work to secure byways funding. ASAE awarded Scenic America a 2022 Gold Circle Award for its media and public relations campaign promoting scenic byways. Mark was also appointed to the Route 66 Centennial Commission by President Joe Biden.
  • Prior to his arrival at Scenic America, Mark served as Deputy Director of the National Immigration Forum, and before that was a five-term elected member of the House of Representatives in Massachusetts. As a member of the National Conference of State Legislatures, he was twice elected to the Executive Committee.
  • Mark holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Boston College and a Master of Public Administration degree from the Harvard University John F. Kennedy School of Government. He resides in Prince George’s County, Maryland, where he recently launched a new chapter of Scenic America.
