Local Historic District Designation
In 2019, the town hired historic preservation expert Mary Ruffin Hanbury of Hanbury Preservation Consulting to determine which neighborhoods are appropriate for local historic district designation. Following public input sessions and a windshield survey that took place last summer, the consultant created a draft local historic district designation report for a portion of town north of the existing downtown local historic district, known as the North Main Street Extension of the Davidson Local Historic District.
An informational open house will be held on January 22 from 5:30 p.m.-7:00 pm in the town hall board room for property owners within the proposed local historic district expansion area. The purpose of the open house is to review the proposed local historic district boundary expansion, answer questions, and solicit feedback prior to beginning the rezoning process. The proposed rezoning would include expanding the local historic district overlay.
