Southern Hills


Southern Hills Neighborhood Plan

Southern Hills was annexed into the City from Roanoke County in 1976. The neighborhood has seen considerable residential and commercial development over the last 10 years or so. It is the southernmost neighborhood of the City and is bound by major transportation nodes, Route 220 on the south and the Mill Mountain Parkway to the east. Along 220, Southern Hills is urban and commercially oriented. In contrast, the area between Van Winkle Road and Griffin Road is rural, with low-density residential development and wooded areas. Fairly recent developments, The Summit and Pheasant Ridge, have brought higher-density and higher priced housing to the neighborhood. A stone quarry lies in the far south of the neighborhood.

Planning staff held public meetings with residents in the late Summer and Fall of 2000 to gain input for the plan. The plan was adopted by City Council in October, 2002.
