Zoning Code

Roanoke's zoning ordinance (Chapter 36.2, Article I, of the Code of the City of Roanoke) establishes regulations that promote the health, safety and general welfare of the public. The Zoning Code regulates the use and establishes regulations for development of parcels.

Typical zoning violations are:
  • Use not permitted
  • Outdoor storage not allowed
  • parking of commercial vehicles in residential zoned districts
  • construction of fences, pools, and decks without zoning permits

To determine if your use or project will require a permit, please contact the  Permit Center.
