The Alamance County Planning Board is an appointed advisory Board consisting of 13 members. Planning Board members are appointed by the Alamance County Board of Commissioners and serve for 3 year terms. The Planning Board consists of 9 regular (voting) members, 3 alternate members, and 1 County Commissioner that serves in an ex-officio (without vote) capacity. Board members may serve for 2 consecutive terms, after which members are ineligible for reappointment for a period of 1 year.
Diverse representation of the County is a priority of the Planning Board. To achieve this, no more than 2 members may represent any specific township and no more than 1 member may serve as a regular (voting) member.
Responsibilities and duties of the Alamance County Planning Board include the review of new ordinances, review of ordinance amendments, subdivision waivers, and other matters pertaining long-range land use planning.
The Planning Board meets on the second Thursday of each month at 7:00PM. All meetings, unless otherwise noted, are held in the Commissioner's Meeting Room located at 124 West Elm Street in Graham, NC.
