Planning Board

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 to 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.
