Development and Zoning
Zoning is a tool to regulate land use, prevent nuisances, and preserve the Town’s character. Each zoning district has different dimensional standards and permitted uses outlined in Article 5 of the Unified Development Ordinance (UDO).
The zoning map shows the assigned district of all properties in Rolesville’s corporate limits and extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ). The Town Board adopted the current map in 2017. To change the zoning of a particular parcel or parcels, the Town Board must amend the approved zoning map. This is a legislative process.
To petition for a map amendment, a special use permit, or a variance, one must file a completed application with the Town, and pay all applicable fees found in the Adopted Fiscal Year Budget. The applications are available on the Forms and Applications. The Planning Department encourages potential petitioners to contact the staff to schedule a pre-submittal meeting.
