Community Members Encouraged to Attend the
Final Park at Beaty Street Public Forum:
Last Public Forum before Recommendation to Board
Tuesday, February 19, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
The Town of Davidson’s Park at Beaty Street Conceptual Plan Task Force invites all members of the community its final public forum on February 19 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Davidson Town Hall. The format for the evening will be a presentation along with a question and answer period.
The task force will share information from geotechnical and hydrologic studies on the pond/dam and the property. The studies were completed by engineering firm Kimley-Horn in mid-January and included a geotechnical assessment of the dam integrity and dam maintenance costs, other possible options, water quality assessments and a hydrologic analysis of water flow on the property.
A schematic of a proposed park design will be available. The task force will provide a brief recap of public input to date and share information on exploratory research for possible funding sources and the possibility of a nonprofit to serve as a “friends group” to all Davidson parks.
After the presentations, the task force is opening the forum up to a Q&A period.

About the Task Force and the Beaty Property
The citizen-led task force was appointed by the Davidson Board of Commissioners in late May 2018 and charged with soliciting input from Davidson citizens to identify park and recreation needs along with ancillary public amenities in keeping with the natural, park-like setting of the property.
Citizens can find more information at www.townofdavidson.org/parkatbeaty. The task force meets the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. The locations are the Davidson Town Hall board room on the 1st Wednesday and the Hurt Hub, 210 Delburg Street, on the 3rd Wednesday.
Kathryn Spatz, Parks & Recreation Director for the town, will serve as primary staff liaison for the task force. Please contact Kathryn at 704-940-9644, firstname.lastname@example.org for more information regarding the task force’s work and schedule.
