UPDATE (4/27/21, 9:53PM) Based upon concerns and feedback from the Davidson Board of Commissioners at their regular meeting on April 27, 2021, this survey has been closed. Town staff will be working on other opportunities to provide feedback related to the potential adoption of a non-discrimination ordinance. Thank you to all of you who participated in this process.
In December 2020, a key section of House Bill 142 expired and North Carolina municipalities now have the authority to enact local inclusive non-discrimination ordinances. Elected officials are now free to pass those ordinances and many jurisdictions are exploring how best to protect their residents.
The Town of Davidson is considering adopting such an ordinance pending feedback from the community and approval from the Davidson Board of Commissioners.
If you would like to read the recommended language and provide feedback on the potential non-discrimination ordinance, visit the Town of Davidson's Speak Up platform here. More information is also available at www.townofdavidson.org/nondiscrimination.
The results of the community survey will be reviewed by the Affordable Housing and Equity Board and the Davidson Board of Commissioners before the latter makes a determination about the potential ordinance.
