The Physical Growth and Development Pattern of the town as spatial pattern of activities in the particular period of time is defined and is addressed both as spread horizontally and compact town pattern of development. Understanding pattern of town physical development in order to steer it to sustained urban development is essential. Therefore, the main issue in the effort to stop the misuse of the land is Land Use or Land Use Policies of the major cities; hence, is sparse growth or population growth the dominant force? On the other hand, in the recent decades, urban growth plan was unscheduled, and urban areas in a short time came several times of its original size, this problem has been known as urban pattern of horizontal spread and the source of many problems in cities in developing countries has been this variable. In recent years the growth of Serish Abad town has been uneven and sporadic. The researchers in this study have used the Shannon entropy models to analyze how the development of this town has happened. With respect to the methodology, the analysis consisted of a comparative study of documents for review. The results show that during 2011-2016 Serish Abad town has grown and was developed in the scattered growing disproportion pattern (Sprawl); while, the intensive growth pattern (vertical) as a model for future development of town, with consideration of other uses with residential uses, a low-density residential complexes, is addressed and recommended.
