The City of Roanoke continues to be a great place to live, dine, shop and play. We want our citizens to not only enjoy the City on a daily basis, but we want to be a destination place for surrounding residents and visitors alike. Also, we strive to maintain the unique, eclectic, small town charm in the Downtown area with smart, selective growth. We work to maintain the current 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 has always been an inclusive city. We have 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. Roanoke has been one of the top 10 fastest growing communities in the Metroplex for four straight years and has a tremendous pro-business attitude. We are now the central point to the DFW Metroplex as projected over ten years ago. Economic development is a catalyst for creating jobs, providing necessary amenities, improving quality of life and fueling the local economy. Roanoke’s sales tax base outperforms numerous cities in our two-county area. Roanoke is currently experiencing unprecedented, accelerated growth and continues to have a large economic impact on surrounding areas. Roanoke has a current population of 8,500 residents and home to over 7,000 jobs within our six-square-mile community. ‘A city that works together does great things together.’ Roanoke has been the leader of showing a great council and staff relations.”- Mayor Carl “Scooter” Gierisch, Jr.
