Where should Roanoke’s next “Target Area” be located?

Roanoke receives Federal Community Development funds that is used to improve many aspects of a neighborhood – ranging from housing renovations to street and park enhancements. To maximize that funding, the City of Roanoke selects a targeted area to allocate funds to for a period of roughly three to five years. The City is currently allocating funding to projects in the Melrose-Orange Target Area (MOTA). Prior to MOTA, Community Development funding supported housing and infrastructure projects in Southeast.

Public Deliberation Meeting on Oct. 20, 2018

The City is meeting a diverse group of residents to participate in a group discussion between 8:30 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 20. During this meeting, we will discuss what neighborhood(s) will receive federal funding during the next cycle. Selected participants will receive a $100 gift card and childcare can be provided.
