Rolesville Comprehensive Plan
The Rolesville Comprehensive Plan was adopted on October 3, 2017. 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.
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.

In 2002, the Town of Rolesville completed a Transportation Plan for the town and the surrounding area. Through this, the Town Board adopted design criteria, a thoroughfare plan, and renderings to use as a tool to manage the growth of Rolesville.

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.

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.
