What is sustainability?

According to the Environmental Protection Agency, sustainability is based on a simple principle: Everything we need for our survival and well-being depends, either directly or indirectly, on our natural environment. To pursue sustainability is to create and maintain the conditions under which humans and nature can exist in productive harmony to support present and future generations.

Davidson's  core values state

The physical, social, and intellectual well-being of Davidson citizens is fundamental to our community, so town government will provide and encourage enjoyable, safe, and affordable recreational and cultural lifelong learning opportunities.

Citizens must live in a healthy environment, so government will protect watersheds, trees, air quality, and other elements of the town's ecology.

Summer 2022

The Town of Davidson and Crown Town Compost are partnering on a new 6-month pilot composting program that will allow 250 residents to sign-up in early September to bring their food scraps to five drop-off locations in Davidson for composting. Given that approximate 30 percent of residential food waste is compostable, we hope to gain valuable data during this 6-month pilot period to assess future need. Details about the Davidson Composts pilot program can be found here

In June, the Sustainability Committee announced they were seeking additional members for the committee. The process saw an overwhelming interest and the committee was ultimately tasked to select five new members. To view a list of committee members click here
