Public Records Request
Pursuant to N.C.G.S. Chapter 132, The Town of Holly Springs makes available to the public all records in its custody and control that are defined as “public records” under N.C.G.S. §132-1.
There is no charge for inspecting records in person or receiving them electronically. Copies, flash drives, or other methods of receiving records, or requests that require extensive use of technology resources, clerical and/or supervisory assistance will be charged according to the fee schedule in place at the time of the request and you will be given an estimate of the charges before your request is filled.
The Town Clerk’s Office is the official custodian of Town records. Many records of a permanent and recent nature can be downloaded from our website. These include:
Zoning Verification Requests
Public record requests for information on real estate, such as property zoning, development/site plan approval, special/conditional uses, variances, conditions of approval, zoning violations or compliance with conditions of approval should be directed to the Department of Planning & Zoning for a zoning verification request.
- Accident reports: Visit the N.C. Department of Transportation, select “crash reports” under the “Offices & Services” tab, and request information.
- Birth or death certificates, divorce decrees, marriage records: Maintained by Wake County Register of Deeds, (919) 856-5460.
The Clerk’s Office also maintains a library of scanned public records dating back to 1927. This library is available for public review and research between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. on business days in the Town Clerk’s Office at Town Hall, located at 128 S. Main Street. Please contact the Clerk’s Office to make an appointment prior to coming in for research so that staff may be available to assist you. If you choose to make paper copies of a record you will be charged ten cents per page. Alternatively, you may bring a flash drive with you and a staff member will download the records for you.
Please fill out the form below with as much specificity as possible to allow staff to gather the records prior to your appointment. Please be sure to include at least one method of contacting you, so that we can advise you when your records are ready.
