Town Held Groundbreaking for 251 South Street
The Town of Davidson broke ground for the 251 South Street Town Center Public Facilities project on February 9, 2021 at 1:00 p.m. Approved by voters in 2019, the Town of Davidson will proceed with the first phase of its $14 million dollar project in support of public facilities for public safety, town staff and programming, and community use.
This first phase includes renovation of the historic 251 South Street for a new town center. The completed renovations, done in a way to preserve the historic character of the building, will create a new town center where approximately half of the building is available for community gathering space. Town of Davidson offices will also occupy the building, providing for the growing needs of the town’s administrative functions.
The Davidson Board of Commissioners and select members of the Historic Landmarks Commission commemorated the occasion with a brief groundbreaking ceremony. Due to public health guidance, the town observed all COVID-19 protocols including holding the brief event outdoors and strictly limiting the number of individuals present to those participating in the ceremony. A livestream of the event was available on the town’s YouTube page for all members of the public and the press.
