Residential Plans Library

The Residential Plans Library is a database of professionally designed, pre-approved residential building plans available for purchase that complement the character of Roanoke’s neighborhoods. These complete sets of construction plans will save you time and money!

Here’s why:
    1. Affordably priced plus the City has already covered the cost of any required modifications. ***Pricing information is subject to change. Please contact the vendor for current purchasing and plan use policy.
    2. Pre-approved by the City of Roanoke for compliance with the Neighborhood Design District and the Virginia Uniform Statewide Building Code, expediting your review process. ***Prior to purchase, please contact Jillian Papa to ensure your selected plan meets the height, width, and setback requirements for your chosen lot. Modifications to a plan will negate City’s pre-approval.
    3. Reduced permitting fees (building review fee already covered).
Here’s how it works:
    1. Determine building height, width, and setback requirements per the Zoning Ordinance of your chosen lot.
    2. Consult the Neighborhood Patterns section of the Residential Pattern Book for the City of Roanoke to determine your chosen lot’s neighborhood classification.
    3. Select plan from the Residential Plans Library that meets your specifications, complies with zoning requirements, and complements the neighborhood.
    4. Contact Jillian Papa to confirm that the selected plan is compatible with the chosen lot.
    5. Purchase plan from vendor. Please ensure that you specify the plan number when ordering.
    6. Draft a basic development plan to submit with building plans.
    7. Submit building permit application package to the Permit Center (Rm. 170 of the Noel C. Taylor Municipal Building at 215 Church Avenue SW) for review and approval.
