The Town of Davidson Posts New Question on Open Town Hall:
Affordable Housing Options
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.
This new topic on Open Town Hall asks: “How should the Town of Davidson approach affordable housing?” The Town of Davidson is committed to maintaining an economically diverse citizenry and providing affordable housing opportunities for residents of all income levels and ages. The town is conducting a housing needs assessment to determine the current housing needs in the community, especially those of low- and moderate-income earners.
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.
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.
