Rumor or Fact?

June 3, 2015. Your Town is committed to protecting your tax dollar investment by keeping your public streets safe and maintained. Over the years since the Town’s beginning in 1979, many of the streets your Town received from a developer or a property owners’ association have had to be completely removed and rebuilt due to substandard original construction. In performing these improvements to your streets, the Town is sensitive to the long-term protection of your tax dollar investment, to the safety of the general public, and to the continuing maintenance of the aesthetic ambiance of the Town of Southern Shores.


There has been no study, initiative, consideration, or discussion among any Town officials regarding ever removing the vegetative-earthen median that exists in a section of North Dogwood Trail.

6/21/17 *Juniper Trail is now open to thru traffic-although still an active construction area until sidewalks and final paving, including top deck of culvert crossing are finished. Delays and temporary closures may still occur during final paving.
Change in Beach Nourishment Schedule – Nourishment of the Kitty Hawk/Southern Shores beaches is now scheduled to commence in early August. Given the haul distance from Borrow Area A to KDH is significantly shorter than the distance to KH, GLDD is strongly considering constructing KDH before they do Kitty Hawk and Southern Shores. The shorter distance is more conducive to the smaller dredges and they want to maximize their production while the Dodge and Padre are on site.
