The City of Roanoke is pressing forward with a campaign of innovation and sustainability to have a positive effect on our environment. The Clean and Green campaign is a citywide community program working to make our City attractive and environmentally sound. With this initiative the City of Roanoke’s Planning Building and Development Department has implemented a paperless “Green” approach to our building plan review and intake procedures. Intake of plans, applications and payment in electronic form are not only beneficial to the environment, but are helpful to our customers as well.
This case study was submitted to the Alliance for Innovation for consideration at the 2010 Transforming Local Government conference.
