The Steering Committee for “Vision 251” Hosted their First Public Input Session
The steering committee for “Vision 251” hosted the first of three public input sessions Wednesday evening, seeking input about the future of the 5.28 acre site that the town has purchased. The site includes two buildings, the largest of which has been a Charlotte Mecklenburg school since it was built in the 1930s. The other is a gymnasium. The town purchased the property, including the buildings, for $2.46 million, and last year Davidson citizens voted to approve $14 million in bonds for renovation of the school building as a town hall and community space. The fate of the gymnasium building will be considered later.
Subsequent meetings have been POSTPONED until further notice.
Steering committee members are John Burgess, Ben Beall, Dave Cable, Matt Churchill, Shana Erber, John Griffith, Deborah Keenan, Lisa Koenig, Gil Lorenz, Susan Manning, Elizabeth Martin, Matt Merrill, Jay Neal, Shelley Rigger, Marion Sekerek, Al Sudduth and Stewart Gray.
