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.
