August 7, 2018
At the August 7, 2018, the Davidson Board of Commissioners shared that they worked with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) to seek a contract to purchase the former IB School on South Street for $2.46 million, potentially through installment financing. They voted to authorize staff to perform a “due diligence” process on the purchase and cancel the general obligation bond referendum for the November 6, 2018 election. The Mecklenburg Board of County Commissioners will consider the sale of this property to the Town of Davidson in September, and then assuming the vote passes, we will have 90 days from that date to purchase the property. The $2.46 million price was determined by an appraisal conducted by CMS. Future public engagement will determine how to master plan the site. The board of commissioners believe that it is important to purchase this site so it remains in town control in perpetuity. It offers 33,500 square feet of space to cover our 20-25,000 square feet of space needs. In addition to the historic school building, this site offers a gymnasium, fields, and parking. Since there will be no bond referendum in November, the board of commissioners have decided not to host a table at the Davidson Farmers’ Market on Saturday, August 11 as previously promoted.
