Little Nine Golf Course in Southern Pines Circa 1906
March of 2016 the Town of Southern Pines updated their long range plan outlining the goals and concerns of growth for the Town through 2040. In their words, "The citizens of Southern Pines recognize that their individual and civic livelihood depends on their Town’s relationship with the natural environment.
In Southern Pines, growth and economic activity are to be balanced with finite resources, and sensitive areas are to be protected from damage or fragmentation." (p.2-2, March 2016). The Little Nine Conservancy (LiNC) goals are in keeping with many of the Goals and Objectives serving the senitments outlined in the Comprehensive Plan. As you read our Goals on the home page you can see the relations with the Town of Southern Pines and area residents who want to maintain the historic vision of the founding fathers while keeping our streets safe and providing quality of life.
