Assistant Town Manager Dawn Blobaum introduced architect David Creech and consultant Craig Lewis who discussed the public facilities project.
We have outgrown our existing town hall and need to invest in public facilities in order to keep pace with our service needs. When we built town hall in 1990, our population was 4,000. In 2017, we have approximately 13,000 people in Davidson. Space for our growing police and fire departments is particularly critical.
The Davidson Board of Commissioners voted to approve a capital projects ordinance to establish a capital projects fund, and a budget amendment to allocate $241,000 for phase 1 of the public facilities project. Phase 1 includes a space needs study, architectural and site concept development, public workshops, and a parking study.
Public Facilities Workshops:
We ask all citizens to join us for a series of workshops at Davidson College Presbyterian Church’s Congregation House at 218 Concord Road. The first public workshop is on Thursday, March 9 and the second is on Thursday, April 6. Both workshops begin at 6:00 p.m. with a presentation and include exercises to get direct feedback from Davidson’s citizens.
- The Davidson Board of Commissioners approved a Markham property map amendment, miscellaneous text amendments, and corresponding consistency statements, as presented by Planning Director Jason Burdette.
