Town Board Commissioners

 The Town of Ramseur Board of Commissioners meets the first Monday of each month at 7:30 p.m. If the meeting night falls on a holiday, the meeting is typically rescheduled. Other meetings may also be scheduled for emergency purposes or special purposes such as budget preparation. 

How It Works

 How it works – Proposed action items are developed by either elected officials or town staff and consist of proposed administrative policy, legislation establishing or amending town ordinances, zoning cases, site plan consideration, and other issues. Board action comes in the form of an ordinance or resolution for most items. 

Your Voice

 Lending your voice – Public hearings and public comments allow the public to voice an opinion on the issues. Public hearings and public comments are conducted at the business meetings unless otherwise posted. Although not all matters require hearings, public hearings are typically required by law for certain items such as rezonings and annexations. Public hearing comments are used by the board during their deliberation of an item. Each meeting agenda makes allowance for a period of public comment which provides a means for people to address the board on nearly any matter.

Planning and Zoning


The Zoning Ordinance for the Town of Ramseur was initially adopted by the Board of Commissioners in 1955 and readopted and revised in 1994. Because zoning is a work in progress and is subject to regular changes in legislation, the Zoning Ordinance has incurred many additions and changes since even 1994.

The purpose for zoning in the Town is to promote both the orderly development of land and the public health, safety, and general welfare within Ramseur’s corporate limits. The Zoning Ordinance also regulates locations and use of structures and land for trade, industry, residences, and purposes other than farming.

Ramseur’s Planning Board meets at the Ramseur Municipal Building on every third Monday at 7:00 p.m. The five members of the Planning Board are appointed by the Board of Commissioners and serve terms of four years in length. The members are charged with duties such as assisting in zoning enforcement, reviewing plans to ensure compliance with the Zoning Ordinance, recommending appropriate amendments to the Ordinance, and making recommendations to the Board of Commissioners with regard to zoning decisions. Requests concerning zoning should be brought to the Municipal Building during regular business hours. Matters which require review by the Planning Board should be brought to the Town Administrator, who also serves as the Town’s Zoning Administrator, at least ten business days prior to the next regularly scheduled meeting of the Planning Board.
