Public Facilities Project
Assistant Town Manager and Project Manager Dawn Blobaum, Steering Committee Member Dave Cable, and Brent Green from architect Creech & Associates provided a presentation of the history, citizen participation process, and decision timeline for the public facilities project to
• construct a new town hall in front of the existing town hall to house the board room, community space, and administrative offices, and
• renovate the existing town hall for the police and fire departments.
The Davidson Board of Commissioners voted to suspend this project for 90 days to be able to study and review other potential solutions to our space needs. They will consider a decision in May as to how we may or may not move forward. This could include a focus on getting the police and fire departments the space they need for the next 20-25 years and may include a general obligation bond referendum.
Economic Development Manager Kim Fleming gave an update on the Davidson Board of Commissioners’ request to host community dinners to bring citizens together as a fellowship and community building initiative. The first dinner will take place on Town Day, May 5, on the town green. The town will provide tables, chairs and a main dish, and members of the community are invited to attend and bring a dish to share.
