The City of Roanoke continues to be a great place to live, dine, shop and play. We want to be a destination place not only for our citizens, but also for our surrounding residents and visitors alike. We strive to preserve the unique, eclectic, small town charm in the Downtown area using smart, selective growth. We work to maintain the current low tax rate while adding additional amenities throughout the City to benefit residents, businesses and visitors. 

The City of Roanoke is currently working on a mixed-use project within the Downtown area that will not only provide a residential product currently not available within the City, but will expand on the uniqueness already created. With that project, there will be a 300 plus room Peabody Hotel, convention center, new City Hall, additional retail and upscale office space. This will add to the already thriving shopping, dining and entertainment destination Roanoke has become.

“Roanoke is located in the center of the fastest growing area of the state and is now the central point to the DFW Metroplex, as projected over ten years ago. Year after year, we have experienced prosperity, strong economic growth, a low crime rate, a highly rated school district, and a wide range of affordable housing, while retaining our charming, small town feel, and friendly atmosphere. Roanoke continues to be a great place to live, dine, shop and play, proven by the unprecented, accelerated growth we’ve experienced in the quality retail, industrial and residential development. 

Roanoke has many amenities that were built for our residents but also for our neighboring cities to enjoy. We have a state-of-the-art, 15,000-square-foot Library that is occupied daily with hundreds of residents and guests. Our Recreation Center provides many programs for small children up to our seniors. With our public/private partnership with Hawaiian Falls Waterpark, Roanoke is second to none as a destination. We continue to attract "Unique" restaurants. The City of Roanoke is still one of the lowest combined property tax rates in the state, with more to offer than most small communities in our area. 

Economic development is a catalyst for creating jobs, providing necessary amenities, improving quality of life and fueling the economy of surrounding areas. Roanoke's sales tax base outperforms numerous cities in our two-county area. ‘A city that works together does great things together.’ Roanoke has been the leader of showing great council and staff relations.” - Mayor Carl “Scooter” Gierisch, Jr.
