Meeting Dates

The Planning Board meets on the second Thursday of each month at 7:00 PM in the Commissioners Meeting Room of the Pratt Building located at 227 N. Main Street, Raeford. If there have not been any requests for public hearing the board does not typically meet so it is recommended that you contact the Planning Department to see if a meeting is being held that month.
