An informed and involved citizenry.
The Pinehurst Civic Group has been serving the community and striving to preserve the unique character of Pinehurst since 1977.
Originally formed as an ad hoc group of civic-minded Pinehurst residents, its purpose was to be “an effective influence in supporting projects which are necessary in order to accomplish maximum benefits for our community.” In its early history, the Pinehurst Civic Group also had a political nature that provided a forum for political issue discussion, raised community awareness, and endorsed candidates for election.
Following its incorporation as a non-profit organization in 1989, the Pinehurst Civic Group abandoned its political action committee function in favor of broader purposes. These purposes are to:
- Represent the Views and Values of Pinehurst Citizens,
- Protect the Beauty and History of the Area, and
- Enhance the Quality of Life They Represent
Frequent communication occurs via email to share routine news such as the Village Council agenda or noteworthy events such as public meetings held by the NC Department of Transportation.
At the Annual Meeting, a keynote speaker remarks on current topics such as school board funding and Distinguished Citizen Service Award recipients are named. In election years, Candidate Forums feature Mayor or Village Council contenders.
This committee will be responsible for designing and staging the four or five events we plan to have. They will be similar to the Expo, Forum, Debate and Annual meetings we hosted in 2017.
This committee will be charged with continuing the growth in membership. The committee is starting to meet to discuss ideas for increasing our presence and voice within the many neighborhoods of the Village. Our mantra of to inform and to involve dictates that we have even a larger base of members.
This committee will focus on keeping our members abreast of what is current in the Village and the County that may impact us. We want to be sure we are communicating what you care about and in as much detail as we can without overdoing it- a delicate balancing act.
This committee will be staying on top of the various issues facing the Village- many of which were raised during the recent election. Water, traffic, development, tax rates are only the start of the things that this committee will be focused on.
