Pike Road is a city in Montgomery County, Alabama. Pike Road elects a mayor and a five-member town council every four years. The mayor and all council members are elected at large. The current mayor of Pike Road is Gordon Stone. On December 22, 2010 Pike Road established a Municipal School System. The first school, grades K-8, should open in the fall of 2015 and will be located in The Waters. The Pike Road Public Library is located in the Pike Road Station shopping center near the intersection of Pike and Vaughn Roads.
One of the central commitments Pike Road leaders made in the early days of incorporation was to grow wisely and with careful planning. To accomplish this purpose, the town’s planning commission embraced the idea of “smart growth,” and Smart Code development. Smart Code, as opposed to traditional zoning regulations, places value on creating town center, preserving green spaces and making cities friendlier to pedestrians and recreation. The first municipality in Alabama to adopt Smart Code, Pike Road boasts the most innovative planning system in the Southeast.
