Be a Stormwater Inlet Artist

The City’s Stormwater Utility, along with the Roanoke Arts Commission, invites artists to submit ideas for stormwater inlet art. There is a $400 honorarium per storm drain, with all materials supplied and cash prizes for people’s choice awards. Submissions are due by 2 p.m. on March 9. More information can be found here

Efforts for 2020 Census Start in March

The 2020 Census will be in full swing starting next month. You might be asking, “why should I care” or “what's in it for me?” The U.S. Government uses the Census count to determine how federal funding is distributed to local communities. Your response shapes decisions about how these funds are spent for our schools, fire and emergency services, and healthcare in Roanoke as well as in Southwest Virginia. Here is a link to more information.
