Citizens Invited to Two Public Workshops about our
Public Facilities: March 9 and April 6 at 6:00 p.m.
Plus, Register for a Tour of Town Hall
Citizens are invited to two public workshops about our public facilities:
- Thursday, March 9 and
- Thursday, April 6
Both workshops are at Davidson College Presbyterian Church’s Congregation House at 218 Concord Road at 6:00 p.m. and each should last approximately 1.5 hours.
We will start with a brief presentation of the project to share the history and timeline, and then the architect we have hired, Creech & Associates, will lead attendees in a series of station exercises so citizens can provide direct feedback on several issues. Stations will consist of a large board or a table of information with a facilitator at each table. These are the topics that will be covered:
- Things that make Davidson great
- Architectural character and scale
- Town hall site planning options
- Davidson Farmer’s Market
- Community space needs
The workshop on April 6 will provide a review of what was learned at the March 9 workshop, and Creech & Associates will provide an overall vision/plan for the area and some building site options. They will facilitate exercises that will allow citizens to provide feedback on visual preferences and site/building options, host questions and answers with the design team, and provide a display of boards where options will be presented and citizens will be able to “vote” by placing a sticker on an image.
Why is the town considering this project?
As Davidson’s population has grown from 4,000 in 1990 to almost 13,000 today, we have outgrown our existing town hall. Ensuring adequate space for our police and fire departments is particularly critical. We need to invest in our public facilities in order to keep pace with our service needs. We will study the approximately 4 acres of town-owned land on which our current town hall sits (please see area in red below).
