    Now let’s talk about what that could look like! Roanoke County and the City of Roanoke are holding two design open houses to discuss your preferences for the future look and feel of Oak Grove. You’ll get a chance to give feedback on future possibilities for multi-modal transportation improvements as well as design and aesthetics for a new Oak Grove Center.
