Town Development


The Town of Southern Pines is currently undertaking significant development and revitalization plans as the town grows. The largest of these efforts is revision of the Unified Development Ordinance (UDO), designed to implement and be consistent with the goals, objectives, policies, and strategies of the Comprehensive Long-Range Plan, which was adopted in 2010 as a 20-year guide to town development and updated on March 8, 2016.

The plan and UDO give special emphasis on development of the downtown historic district and the West Southern Pines neighborhood.

Bike & Pedestrian Plan

The town is also excited about the Bike and Pedestrian Plan, which it has begun implementation this year. This plan lays the groundwork for extending greenways for cyclists and pedestrians throughout Southern Pines, and making the town more walk-able for everyone.
