Project Sustainability

What is Envision?

Envision is a rating system and planning guide used by the City of Roanoke to assess and improve our infrastructure projects. The rating system promotes sustainability in five key categories: Quality of Life, Leadership, Resources Allocation, Natural World, and Climate and Risk. The overall goal with incorporating Envision concepts into drainage projects is to ensure that the City of Roanoke is not only doing the project right, but the right project. A project that would address the needs and goals of the community across all areas.
