[ARCHIVED] The City Planning, Building, and Development Department to Host Virtual Community Engagement Forum

The City of Roanoke Planning, Building, and Development Department will host a Virtual Community Engagement Forum on the Text Amendments to the Zoning Ordinance, as part of the City’s alignment with the 2040 Comprehensive Plan, on Oct. 28 at 1 p.m. on the City’s Facebook page in a Q&A session. 

The forum will address the three amendments that relate to the specific items referenced in the City Plan 2040:

  • Permitting “accessory apartments” in all residential zoning districts throughout the City, addressing the need for affordable housing and opportunities for people to age in place.
  • Creating accessory uses for both “electric vehicle charging stations” and “solar energy systems,” to embrace new energy efficient technologies. 
  • Eliminating the minimum parking requirements in all zoning districts throughout the City, to avoid requiring parking that is unnecessary and creates large, seldom used parking lots.

For questions, please contact Phillip Moore at [email protected].
