Our Vision

The Planning Board works to provide prudent guidance in land planning issues to reflect the values of the community.

Our Mission

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. 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.
