Planning and Development


The purpose of the Planning and Development Department is to provide land use services to citizens, developers, and other stakeholders in the community. The City of Roxboro is striving to improve its environment with opportunities that will add value to the experience of living or owning a business in our community.  

Our goal is to increase economic opportunities and viability by creating stable neighborhoods for our residents and accessibility to information for burgeoning entrepreneurs and developers. We achieve this goal by assisting in the management and growth of the City. Whether reviewing private development projects, or working with design firms on a major subdivision proposal, our office is committed to providing quality customer service to all.

In addition to authorizing administrative zoning permits, staff also provides support to the City's Planning Board, Board of Adjustment, and Uptown development organization.

Our planning and zoning efforts are community wide and we work closely with Person County Building Inspections, Person County Planning and Zoning, and other local development service agencies. 

We are currently located in City Hall (Municipal Building) at 105 South Lamar Street.
