The H-2 district is spread among four neighborhoods in Roanoke:
- Old Southwest
- Patterson Avenue
- Mountain View
The neighborhoods are comprised predominantly of residential structures. In the spring of 2009, the Architectural Review Board and staff recommended that each neighborhood have its own individual set of H-2 Guidelines. While the general guidelines remain the same for each neighborhood, the sections pertaining to working with the board, Architectural Styles, and the Table of Contents are specific to each neighborhood.
