The City of Roanoke was awarded a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) grant to acquire and remove the CeeBreeze Property and create permanent open space. The city is looking for input from the neighborhood on what the future of this area should look like.
Please visit the Stormwater tent on Wednesday, 4/27 from 5-7pm to submit your ideas and comments. We will be set up along the Lick Run Greenway near the parking lot at the intersection of 10th St NW & Syracuse Ave NW.
About the property: The property is located at 1418 10th St SW along the Lick Run Greenway. It is also located in the floodway. Because of this, FEMA prohibits any structures and impervious structures from being built onsite, even bathrooms. Due to building condition and neighborhood health concerns, the building will be removed as soon as possible, as early as April or May. This may occur prior to the public meeting. This will not affect the public comment process.
