I grew up in Roanoke and one thing has been constant. As Roanoke goes, so goes the valley, with no disrespect to other localities.
Roanoke has had some divisive issues and made tough decisions to better position the city for the future. The rezoning of Huff Lane and development of Evans Spring will require more tough decisions. But the potential is great for the region.
