The Town of Davidson Posts New Question on Open Town Hall:
Parks and Recreation Program Offerings
The Town of Davidson has posted a new question on Open Town Hall, an online platform designed to engage citizens in a conversation and harness their input on important town projects and issues.
Town officials and staff will use this public input to help guide their decision-making process. Further, the town aims to engage citizens by sharing information on each issue and providing more opportunities for citizen interaction and feedback.
This new topic on Open Town Hall asks: “What programs would you like to see offered through Davidson Parks and Recreation?” The Town of Davidson Parks and Recreation Department strives to promote holistic healthy living through the seven dimensions of wellness: physical, emotional, intellectual, environmental, social, spiritual, and occupational. Davidson Parks and Recreation offers programs for adults, families, and children. A variety of free programs, community activities, and special events are also offered through the department.
Citizens can access Open Town Hall directly by going to www.townofdavidson.org/OpenTownHall or by clicking the green “Open Town Hall” icon in the center right of the town homepage at www.townofdavidson.org. Once on the Open Town Hall page, citizens can read what others are saying about the topic and share their opinions. Residents can join the discussion by logging in with an email address. After receiving an activation email from Peak Democracy, citizens can choose whether to give their feedback anonymously or with their full names posted.
