Consultation has concluded

After a year-long process, the Village’s Comprehensive Plan nears completion. On October 22, the Village Council will consider adopting the 2019 Comprehensive Plan, new long-range planning document that articulates the community’s vision for the future and identifies the actions we need to take to retain the high quality of life in Pinehurst.

Since the Community Open House in June, Village officials have assimilated resident feedback into the Plan; clarified the vision for the Plan’s five Focus Areas; added, modified, combined, and deleted Implementation Strategies originally proposed; and modified the Plan accordingly. The revised Plan has also been reorganized to more clearly and accurately reflect resident needs and desires for our community.

Protecting the character and authenticity of Pinehurst, while addressing the impacts of growth within our community and the broader region in a way that ensures a continued high quality of life, is a central theme of the long-range plan. Click here to view the Plan's Vision and Guiding Principles.

Several strategic opportunities emerged from Envision the Village to help position the Pinehurst of the future to better meet the needs of Village residents, businesses, and visitors while retaining our small-town charm and rural feel. The Top 10 Strategic Opportunities (in no particular order) are:

  1. Reinvigorate the Village Center by developing a thriving arts, culture, and entertainment market to create a “Golf by Day, Arts by Night” atmosphere.
  2. Create new open spaces and amenities within neighborhoods such as neighborhood parks, dog parks, gathering spaces, and community gardens.
  3. Become a Digital Village and a premier destination to “Live and Work from Home” with expanded high speed Internet and wireless infrastructure.
  4. Promote high quality development and design through an update to the Pinehurst Development Ordinance that includes character-based zoning concepts and the use of pattern books.
  5. Become a pedestrian friendly community with expanded pedestrian, bicycle, and golf cart connectivity.
  6. Create a thriving business environment that encourages innovation and creativity with “innovation hubs”, co-working spaces, and artist studios in the Village Place area near the Village Center and the NC Highway 5 commercial area.
  7. Evaluate possible expansion and construction of new Village facilities such as a library, arts and entertainment venues, municipal buildings, and community parks to meet the needs of a growing and diverse population.
  8. Seek ways to minimize traffic congestion throughout the Village, especially at the traffic circle and on NC Highway 5, to address resident concerns.
  9. Expand and enhance stormwater management efforts to protect property owner interests.
  10. Seek to expand the extra-territorial planning jurisdiction to the north of NC Highway 211 and west of US Highway 15-501 to ensure appropriate development along corridors into the Village.
