Official Zoning Map of the City of Roanoke


The Official Zoning Map, which delineates the location and boundaries of the zoning districts, is a series of electronic maps which can be accessed on the City’s Real Estate GIS website. The Planning & Zoning Layers consists of 15 layers. The layers pertinent to zoning include Zoning, Sign Overlay, Design Overlay, and Historic Districts.

To search for the zoning designation of a property:
  • Click the Search tab in the upper left-hand corner.
  • Select Search Method (tax number or street name)
  • Enter parcel number (7-digit tax map number) or street address (enter only street number and street name; do not enter St., Ave., Rd., Ln., etc.)
  • Double-click on the appropriate listing under Results. The parcel will be highlighted on the map and property information will appear at the bottom of the screen.
  • To display zoning designations on the map, select Map Layers followed by Planning & Zoning Layers and select base and overlays zones to find your parcel's designation.
  • Access legends for the zoning designations by expanding the drop-down box of the appropriate layer.
