Roanoke County's Zoning Code Enforcement officers work with citizens and property owners to investigate and resolve violations of the County code and zoning ordinance. These rules and regulations are in effect to ensure the health, safety, and welfare of its citizens and to promote convenient, harmonious, and attractive communities.
Our Zoning Code Enforcement staff receives hundreds of zoning code violation complaints each year, ranging from tall grass complaints to unpermitted construction, vehicle violations, and excessive debris. To help streamline the reporting of zoning code violations and the investigation of complaints, residents are encouraged to use the division's Neighborhood Concerns Application.
The Neighborhood Concerns application features:
- A drop-down list of zoning-related categories, including grass and brush complaints, excessive debris, vehicle violations, construction violations, and more,
- Interactive map-based location selector that lets visitors select the precise location of a zoning complaint,
- A digital "receipt" for the complaint that lets you check on the complaint's status as soon as 24 hours after submission.
To submit a zoning-related complaint, please use our Neighborhood Concerns Application.
