About Roanoke 

The City of Roanoke is located three miles from Texas Motor Speedway and minutes from DFW and Alliance Airports. Roanoke is located in the center of the fastest growing area of the state and is now the central point to the DFW Metroplex. 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 and host over a dozen festivals and special events each year. Roanoke is currently home to more than 60 unique dining options, and welcomes thousands of visitors each week. 

Preserving the Past & Planning for the Future

We are committed to preserving Roanoke's history and tradition, which dates back to 1881, while utilizing the most current planning and development resources available. This effort is resulting in our optimally redeveloped historic downtown, a vital, thriving, and charming downtown area with cultural events, amenities, and tourist attractions. Roanoke is dedicated to developing and maximizing the economic opportunities for the benefit of all residents and business owners throughout the city, to enhance quality of life for all.
