The Planning board is responsible for acquiring and maintaining information and materials pertaining to planning and development in order to prepare, amend, and revise comprehensive plans, studies, and development proposals. The board advises the Town Council by preparing and recommending ordinances and policies to promote orderly development that conforms to the principles and requirements of the comprehensive plan. The board consists of eleven (11) members that meet on the last Tuesday of every month.

Regular meetings of the Planning Board shall be held on the last Tuesday of each month at 5:00 pm at the Wilkesboro Town Hall provided that, if the Chairman so directs, meetings may be held at any other time or place in the Town. Absence from three or more consecutive meetings or six meetings within the space of a year shall be deemed sufficient cause to ask for that member’s resignation.

Special meetings of the Planning Board may be called at any time by the Chairman, provided that timely notice is given to each member.

Whenever there is no business for the Planning Board, the Chairman may dispense with a regular meeting by giving timely notice to all members.
