Open Space and Greenways Plan

In 2002, the Town of Rolesville participated with Wake County and surrounding municipalities in simultaneously adopting open space and greenway plans specific for each municipality. The Town of Rolesville adopted an Open Space and Greenways Master Plan for the purpose of protecting the natural and cultural resources that community residents value most, and supporting and enhancing its small town heritage. The Town’s Open Space Plan is consistent with a larger, comprehensive Open Space Plan for Wake County. Rolesville’s adopted Open Space and Greenway Plan calls for stream buffer zones for six local stream corridors, natural and pedestrian use greenway corridors, scenic road designation for at least five key traffic corridors, and bike routes.

Bicycle Plan

In 2012, Rolesville, in cooperation with NCDOT and J.S. Lane Company, LLC, developed a comprehensive bicycle planning document and process by studying Rolesville and its zoning jurisdiction.  The purpose of the Plan was to provide recommendations on physical infrastructure, programs, policies, and implementation concepts that would help Rolesville improve its cycling environment in terms of safety and the encouragement of more cycling.  Follow links below for the Comprehensive Bicycle Plan:

Hazard Mitigation Plan

Hazard mitigation planning is a process in which hazards are identified and profiled, people and facilities at risk are assessed for threat and vulnerability, and then mitigation actions are developed.  The result of the process is an integrated and coordinated effort to mitigate hazards and to lessen the impact of damage caused by those hazards to life, the economy, our infrastructure, and our ability to continue to operate as a community and town. The Wake County Multi-Jurisdictional Hazard Mitigation Plan, a collaborative effort between local municipal and county government agencies, is an attempt to document these actions and to prioritize implementation efforts.
