Capital Improvement Incentive Fund

About the Fund
Have you ever wanted to build a trail, add lights to a playing field, or simply make improvements to a county park? While Roanoke County is committed to continually improving our recreation areas, there’s just not enough time or money to do it all immediately. But with your help, projects can get off the ground right now.
