The Planning Board works to provide prudent guidance in land planning issues to reflect the values of the community.
The Mission of the Alamance County Planning Board is to respond to needs of its citizens by providing leadership and guidance for the comprehensive , thoughtful and orderly growth and development of our land based upon respect for our rich history , culture, and fairness to our citizens.
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.
