Community Invited to Learn About Public Facilities Plans
DAVIDSON, N.C. – Community members are invited to learn about and provide input on our current public facilities proposal to master plan the property at 251 South Street for public facilities and other uses, and renovate our existing town hall for the police and fire departments on the following date:
- Monday, December 17 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at two locations:
- Davidson Town Hall board room
- Hopewell Baptist Church fellowship hall (18841 Davidson-Concord Road)
At the open house (drop-in format), we’ll share:
- Renovation plans for the school building at 251 South Street,
- Previous plans to construct a new town hall in front of the existing town, and
- Renovation plans for our existing town hall to house our police and fire departments.
Attendees will have the opportunity to speak with town staff to share feedback or fill out a comment card. Please join us; we want to hear from you.
If you are unable to attend the public input session on this date, please review details at www.townofdavidson.org/PublicFacilities and email your thoughts on the plans to renovate the former IB school for public facilities and other uses vs. building a new town hall in front of the existing town hall to [email protected].
“We have selected two locations on the same evening to encourage participation from all geographies in town,” said Assistant Town Manager Dawn Blobaum. “The Davidson Board of Commissioners seeks feedback from the community to guide their decision-making process for this soon-to-be-acquired property.”
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. In mid-December, the Town of Davidson will purchase the property at 251 South Street, consisting of a school building, gymnasium, parking lot, and green space.
