Following the board of commissioners' decisions at their mini-retreat and board meeting in July, 2016, town staff is moving forward with a planning process for public facilities on the 3.5 acres of town-owned land downtown. The option under consideration incl
A Request for Qualifications (RFQ) was issued for a design team to undertake the process. It will include two major phases: 1) conceptual design and public input process resulting in a site master plan; and 2) upon a vote by the board of commissioners to move forward, the schematic design, design development, and production of construction documents for the proposed buildings and site improvements. We have selected Creech & Associates as the architect.

Davidson Town Hall Tours
In order for citizens to visualize our space needs, we’ve set up four identical town hall tours. Please register online here. The lunchtime sessions will have a “Lunch and Learn” format where citizens can enjoy a light lunch while learning about the project as a whole, and tour town hall, including a visit to the police and fire departments. The evening sessions serve to accommodate citizens that are unavailable during daytime hours; no food will be served. Please meet in the board room. Please join us!
Here are the options for which to register:
- Wednesday, March 15: 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.
- Wednesday, March 22: “Lunch and Learn” from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m.
- Tuesday, March 28: “Lunch and Learn” from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m.
- Monday, April 3: 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.
Creech and Associates provided us with a link to an online survey to gather feedback from citizens on this project. Please click the following link and complete it: http://www.questionpro.com/t/AJ8IIZYftH
Hard copies of the survey will be available at the front desk of Davidson Town Hall.
