A summary of the February 14 work session (4:00 p.m.):
The town must fund at least 20% of each project to apply for certain grants.
The Potts/Sloan/Beaty Corridor project and the Exit 30 bridge and roundabouts project are already in progress and will be funded with bonus allocation funds from the I-77 Managed Lanes project.
A summary of the February 14 regular meeting (6:00 p.m.):
The Davidson Board of Commissioners approved resolutions to direct the Town Clerk to investigate petitions for the annexation of the West Branch project and 321 Catawba Ave., as well as a resolution to advertise an upset bid process for affordable housing in the Bailey Springs neighborhood.
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 will host a Coffee Chat on Monday, February 20 at The Egg from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Please join us.
There is a new question on Open Town Hall regarding the Davidson Police Department. Please visit www.townofdavidson.org/OpenTownHall to share your thoughts.
The next meeting of the Davidson Board of Commissioners has been moved to Monday, February 27 (work session at 4:00 p.m. and regular meeting at 6:00 p.m.) from February 28.
