Our city was selected as one of "America's Most Livable Communities" by Partners for Livable Communities, a national, nonprofit organization working to restore and renew communities.
Roanoke is a Certified Crime Prevention Community, a one-of-a-kind program of recognition created by the Governor's Partnership Commission for Community Safety.
