Downtown Plan 2017

The City of Roanoke will host an Open House meeting to display the major themes and key ideas being proposed within the new Downtown Plan.  Utilizing surveys, public input, and information from stakeholders, the City has begun drafting the Downtown Plan and hopes to establish policies and goals that help add new life and maintain the vibrancy of Downtown Roanoke.   

The City would like your input as you review the big ideas that are starting to take shape within the Downtown Plan.  The format for the Open House meeting will allow participants to arrive anytime throughout the meeting and review the displayed information at their own pace, with staff on hand to answer questions and listen to comments.

The Open House will take place on Tuesday May 9th from 5:30 to 7pm at the City Market Building in the Campbell Avenue Mezzanine on the second floor.
