The Greater Deyerle neighborhood was annexed from Roanoke County in 1976. It is bounded by Electric Road to the west, Mud Lick Creek to the east, the Roanoke River and Salem to the north, and Grandin Road and Roanoke County to the south. The Greater Deyerle neighborhood features several subdivisions, and includes the areas referred to as Medmont and Windsor Hills.

The neighborhood is one of the least developed in the City with houses on multiple acre lots over pastoral landscapes with several lakes. Over the last 50 years, Greater Deyerle has gradually transitioned from a sparsely populated rural area to a low-density suburban community surrounded by commercial development on its edges. Residents of the area take pride in the high quality of life of their neighborhood, and do not want higher density residential or commercial development to negatively impact the natural setting they enjoy.

The original Greater Deyerle Neighborhood Plan was developed after a series of four public workshops between September 1988 and April 1990. The plan was adopted by City Council later in 1990. A new neighborhood plan was adopted on August 21,2006 after a series of three public meetings in the winter and spring 2006.
