Citizens Invited to Learn about the Town’s Public Facilities Proposal

by | Jul 16, 2018 | News, Top Left Box, Town Information

The Town of Davidson is in discussion with Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools to re-purpose the former Davidson Elementary/IB School on South Street.


Citizens are invited to learn about and provide input on the town’s current public facilities proposal to renovate the former IB school on South Street for a new town hall and renovate our existing town hall for the police and fire departments on the following dates:

Thursday, July 19 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.: Open house and ice cream social at the former IB school located at 215 South Street.

At the open house, you’ll get to:

The main building of the school was constructed in 1949.

  • Tour the building to see how it will be renovated,
  • See plans for each floor, as well as renovation plans for our existing town hall
  • Listen to former Davidson College Archivist Jan Blodgett share the history of the site (5:00, 5:30, 6:00 and 6:30 p.m. in the auditorium),
  • Post your memories of the school (Were you are student there? Did one of your kids go there? Did you teach there?) on a big poster,
  • Enjoy Whit’s Frozen Custard and iced tea, and
  • Speak with your elected officials and town staff to share your feedback or fill out a comment card


On Saturday, July 21 and Saturday, August 11 from 9:00 a.m. to noon: Visit the  table at the Davidson Farmer’s Market

The Davidson Board of Commissioners and town staff will be available at all three opportunities to interact with citizens. Please join us; we want to hear from you.

Why is the town considering this public facilities project?
As Davidson’s population has grown from 4,000 in 1990 to almost 13,000 today, we have outgrown our existing town hall. Ensuring adequate space for all departments, board of commissioners’ meetings, and community meeting space is particularly critical. We need to invest in our public facilities in order to keep pace with our service needs. For more information, we encourage you to visit the website.
