Planning Board


The City of Mebane Planning Board is an advisory body that makes recommendations to the City Council on planning matters such as long-range development plans, land use studies, rezoning requests and text amendments to the Unified Development Ordinance.

The Planning Board meets at City Hall on the second Monday of each month at 6:30 p.m., as business warrants. To be heard at a Planning Board meeting, a complete application with associated fees must be submitted to the Planning and Zoning Department at least three weeks prior to the meeting date.

The Planning Board consists of nine members, six of whom are residents of the City of Mebane and appointed by the City Council, and three members (two from Alamance County and one from Orange County) are residents of that area which is within one mile outside of the corporate limits of the city and are appointed by their respective County Commissioners. All positions are for a term of four years. Vacancies occurring otherwise are for the unexpired term. When vacancies occur they will be published in the local paper and applications will be accepted from those who live within the designated area.
