Welcome to the official website for Rolesville, North Carolina.

School Bus Safety

Children are our future and we must protect them at all costs.  There is a growing concern involving children and school bus safety.  The Town of Rolesville Police Department has received complaints about vehicles passing school buses at different locations around Town.  Because of that, we wanted to remind everyone to please watch out for buses and children.  Click here to download a diagram showing when you are required to stop for a school bus and when you are not.  Please make sure to drive safely and obey all traffic laws.  If you were to have any questions, please contact the Police Department at 919.556.7226.

Shopping Spree

Do you despise fighting the mall traffic every year at Christmas?  Hate driving around, and around, and around to find a parking space?  Well, the Town of Rolesville wants to help out.  On Monday, December 8, the Town is providing a Shopping Spree sponsored by “Howard Fleming’s Allstate Insurance.”  Thanks to Allstate, we are providing a bus that will leave Rolesville and drop you off right at the front door of Crabtree Valley Mall.  Just relax and leave it all to us because it is FREE of charge.  Click here to download a fridge flyer to learn more or call the Parks and Recreation Department at 919.554.6582.  The service is provided to senior citizens first and remaining seats will open up to all others on December 1.

Christmas traditions

The Holidays are here already and the Town wanted to make sure everyone was aware of some upcoming items.  On Sunday, December 7, the Chamber of Commerce will be having their annual Christmas Parade.  It is a wonderful event that will start at 2:00 pm.  For more information, please call the Chamber offices at 919.562.7069.  On Monday, December 8, the Town of Rolesville will be having their annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony.  It will start at 6:30 pm at Rolesville Town Hall with New Bethel Baptist Church leading the carols.  All are welcome to attend both events.  Along with the events, please note that Town Hall will be closed November 27 and 28 (for Thanksgiving) and December 24, 25, 26 (for Christmas).  The Town of Rolesville Mayor, Board of Commissioners, and staff wish you and your family the safest and happiest holiday season.

Updates on the Rolesville Bypass

There was a good turnout at the NC DOT Informational Forum (held on April 22) in regards to the Rolesville Bypass project.  One of the suggestions that came from the meeting was an improved communication effort from NC DOT updating the public on the Bypass’s status and progress.  The Town decided to assist in this by setting up a webpage to distribute these updates.  There are a lot of rumors and bad information going around and this will hopefully help answer your questions. Click here to visit the webpage and check back frequently for updates as they are passed down by NC DOT to Rolesville staff..

Operation: Porch Light

Operation Porch Light:  ”Flip on the light to put crime in sight”.  This is a program offered by the Rolesville Police Department.  The Town wants to be pro-active and prevent crime before it happens.  We need everyone’s help though and that is where this new program comes in.  The Town is asking everyone to turn on their front porch lights, driveway lights, backdoor lights, etc. EVERY night.  Our purpose is to increase awareness of safety.  Please be sure to lock you vehicles, doors, and windows at all times and don’t give criminals the opportunity in our community.  To learn more about Operation Porch Light and get tips, click here and visit the Police Department’s page for the program.
