Local Historic District Expansion
Planning Director Jason Burdette provided an update on the proposed North Main Street Extension of the Davidson Local Historic District. This expansion encompasses
approximately 34.25 acres, and is that portion of the Davidson National Register District north of, and adjacent to, the current local district. The board of commissioners unanimously approved Ordinance 2020-01 expanding the existing Local Historic District Overlay found in DPO Section 2.5.3 and the consistency statement.
