Rolesville Comprehensive Plan

The Rolesville Comprehensive Plan is entering its final stage, but there is still work to be done. We began in 2014 with the goal of creating a document to help shape the future of the Town. This process included meeting with stakeholder groups, citizens, and business owners; conducting polls to gauge public interest; and presenting drafts at open houses and other public events to get an idea of how it was coming along.

The Plan is a blueprint for growth, tackling Land Use, Transportation, Parks, and Downtown. It will be used by elected officials, residents, developers, and town staff to help achieve those goals. It was last updated in 2007, so we felt it was time to reexamine these important topics and see how to better address the needs of the Town as it continues to grow.

The Town Board of Commissioners set August 1, 2017 for the public hearing to discuss the Plan. They are asking for the input from the citizens of Rolesville and those living in the Extra Territorial Jurisdiction (ETJ). Reach out to us with your questions, comments, and concerns one final time. Contact Danny Johnson, Caroline Richardson, or call 919-554-6517.


The Rolesville Planning Department handles all land use issues, zoning issues, subdivision review, code enforcement issues, various planning issues, Planning Board meetings, Board of Adjustment meetings, demographics, building permits, and many other various tasks. The office is located at 502 Southtown Circle. The office hours are 8:30 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday. To reach the department by phone, call 919.554.6517, or by fax at 919.556.6852.


The Planning Department strives to achieve excellence while fulfilling its role as administrator and advisor to the Town Manager and governing body on planning, zoning, subdivision, code enforcement and other regulatory programs to guide future growth and development of the Town. Our commitment to excellence goes beyond our obligations to staff and elected officials.

We are committed to providing quality services to all citizens through excellence in customer service. We strongly believe in a community-oriented comprehensive planning approach and welcome any comments, concerns, or suggestions that citizens would like to offer. Our goal, is in accordance with our Community Plan (or Land Use Plan as it is sometime called), is to remain a community of neighborhoods that maintains and celebrates its small town heritage and character as it develops.
