I agree with John Webster’s article in The Pilot about growth. More apartments and more shopping malls will overload our roads so much that no one will be able to drive anywhere in a short length of time. This already happening on N.C. 5 at various times of day.

U.S. 15-501 has the look of big shopping and restaurant center. All this new growth means that more long leaf pines come down. The new residents often do not realize that these trees are special, due to the fact that this is the only place in the world they grow.

Why not let people buy the properties already for sale, which would not only help sell them but also keep the population of Pinehurst the same and the number of cars the same. It would save more trees, which in turn would help keep the village just as pretty as ever.
