City of Roanoke
Proudly the “Unique Dining Capital of Texas,” Roanoke offers small-town charm and a big-city heart. Roanoke offers residents and visitors more than 60 unique dining options, plenty of retail, affordable and safe housing, low property taxes, and a vibrant downtown business corridor. From the beautiful City Hall building to the bustling industrial district, Roanoke is a great place to live, work, and play. Roanoke continues to prosper, boasting strong economic growth, a highly-rated school district, and state-of-the-art amenities. Come see and taste all Roanoke has to offer.
The City of Roanoke is located three miles from Texas Motor Speedway and minutes from DFW and Alliance Airports. Roanoke is a prime location.
Roanoke is located in the center of the fastest growing area of the state and is now the central point to the DFW Metroplex, as projected over ten years ago. Year after year, we have experienced prosperity, strong economic growth, a low crime rate, a highly rated school district, and a wide range of affordable housing, while retaining our charming, small town feel, and friendly atmosphere. Roanoke continues to be a great place to live, dine, shop and play, proven by the unprecedented, accelerated growth we’ve experienced in the quality retail, industrial and residential development.
Roanoke has many amenities that were built for our residents but also for our neighboring cities to enjoy. We have a state-of-the-art, 15,000-square-foot Library that is occupied daily with hundreds of residents and guests. Our Recreation Center provides many programs for small children up to our seniors. Roanoke is second to none as a destination. We continue to attract "Unique" restaurants. The City of Roanoke is still one of the lowest combined property tax rates in the state, with more to offer than most small communities in our area.
Economic development is a catalyst for creating jobs, providing necessary amenities, improving quality of life and fueling the economy of surrounding areas. Roanoke's sales tax base outperforms numerous cities in our two-county area. ‘A city that works together does great things together.’
