CITY OF ROANOKE
WELCOME FROM THE MAYOR
Mayor Carl "Scooter" Gierisch
City of Roanoke
Welcome to Roanoke, The Unique Dining Capital of Texas! I have served as Mayor for 17 years and was born and raised here. It just keeps getting better. Roanoke is a bustling mecca of commerce yet continues that small town charm. Trademarked the Unique Dining Capital of Texas since 2011, we know how to serve up delectable, unique meals, for sure. When we aren’t serving up meals, we are hosting major street festivals, farmers market and concerts. Roanoke is the place to dine, shop and play! Should you be lucky enough to live here, as I have, you will also find an award-winning school district, beautiful parks, polished neighborhoods and low taxes. What more can we ask for? Come see for yourself and visit Roanoke today.
The City of Roanoke is located three miles from Texas Motor Speedway and minutes from DFW and Alliance Airports. Roanoke is a prime location.
Population = 9,805
“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.’ Roanoke continues to be a leader in efficient Council and Staff relations.”
