Davidson Asbestos Virtual Public Information Meeting: Monday, October 4, at 6:30 p.m.

by | Sep 21, 2021

The “Story Map” Davidson Community Asbestos site is frequently cited as great source of information on the former asbestos plant. The upcoming discussion is regarding potential redevelopment plans for the site.


The North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality’s Division of Waste Management, along with the Environmental Protection Agency and Town of Davidson, will co-host an online public information meeting on October 4, 2021 at 6:30 p.m. to discuss the redevelopment plans of the Davidson Depot property located at 301 Depot Street in Davidson.

At this meeting, state environmental staff will provide details about redevelopment plans as they relate to the Brownfields Agreement, including the land-use restrictions, long-term use(s) and conceptual plan for redevelopment. Staff will also present a site history along with a review of the site’s status as a brownfields site, including assessments to-date and overall redevelopment plan adapted for reuse of the existing structures for non-residential uses.

The former Carolina Asbestos Corporation site is being redeveloped through an agreement between the prospective developer and the state’s Brownfields Program, which redevelops vacant, underused, contaminated properties into productive, usable sites.
