The Buildings and Grounds Division is responsible for the maintenance of all the town's buildings and public spaces, including right of ways, greenways, trails, park sites, and the town cemetery.
We have three custodians who ensure the care of 31 town buildings, including all public restrooms. We clean restrooms an average of 400 times per month in the parks alone.
Trees are very important to Southern Pines. Southern Pines is an Arbor Day Foundation recognized Tree City USA for 35 consecutive years, making our community one of the longest running award recipient communities in North Carolina.
At the request of Town Council, the Town and the Appearance Commission's Tree Committee are reviewing the Town's Tree Ordinance.
