Roanoke rule enforcement questioned

A recently passed ordinance raised questions about enforcement and practicality at the Roanoke Town Council meeting on May 19.

The Town of Roanoke had put into effect an ordinance requiring zoned businesses to provide off-street parking made of either asphalt or concrete, with spaces striped and clearly marked. Each business must have one parking spot for every 200 square feet of building space.

But Rick Hartley, of the Roanoke Board of Zoning Appeals, says a new antique store at 138 First St. has not yet complied.
