The Orange County Board of Commissioners appoints representatives to fill two positions on the CHAPEL HILL PLANNING COMMISSION.  These positions represent the JOINT PLANNING AREA (JPA) of Chapel Hill.   The Chapel Hill Planning Board develops a comprehensive plan for the orderly growth and development of Chapel Hill.  It reviews all plans for buildings, projects and facilities to be located within the Town’s jurisdiction.  It also formulates and recommends the adoption and amendment of ordinances.

Orange County strives for diversity on volunteer advisory boards.  Minorities are encouraged to apply.  Applicants must reside in Orange County.  Volunteers appointed by the Board of County Commissioners have an opportunity to influence the way of life in Orange County.
