Town Hall and Community Center & Public Safety Building

251 South Street, Davidsontown hall

Please Note-

The drive entrance on South Street has been poured. The sidewalk along South Street should open 11/4/21.

Work by Charlotte Water on the water and sewer lines is on-going for the next 10 days. In addition, work on the parking lot began on 11/1. The job of grinding and coring out the parking lot to prepare it for paving is the first phase. This will be followed by loads of gravel delivered by dump trucks. A rolling machine will then be used to flatten out and level the gravel so that the asphalt work can begin.  Work on the parking lot should wrap up with asphalt binding (which will involve dump trucks and a small roller which will cause some ground vibration) from 11/22-11/24.

Project Description: With voter approval, the Town of Davidson will be proceeding with a $14 million dollar project in support of public facilities for public safety, town staff and programming, and community use.

The project includes two core components – renovation of the historic 251 South Street for a new town center and reconfiguring the current town hall to better accommodate the needs of the Davidson Police and Fire Departments in order to serve the community as effectively as possible.

The completed renovations of the Town Hall and Community Center (251 South Street), done in a way to preserve the historic character of the building, will create a new town center where approximately half of the building is available for community gathering space. Town of Davidson offices will also occupy the building, providing for the growing needs of the town’s administrative functions.

For public safety, the current town hall reconfiguration will allow the Police Department to occupy the entire main level and add work space for both current and future needs, forensic evidence storage, and a secure exterior space for storage and core police operational functionally. Fire Station 1 will also be modified to improve the kitchen and restroom areas, in addition to adding additional living quarters.
