Master Plan 2024 Update - Public Input Needed!

The Town of Davidson is working on updating the 2014 Parks and Recreation Master Plan.

Members of the public are encouraged to complete the online survey or by visiting the Davidson Town Hall and Community Center at 251 South Street during regular business hours to provide feedback in-person through Wednesday, February 21, 2024.

About The Plan

The latest Davidson Parks & Recreation Master Plan was adopted on November 11, 2014.This assessment describes the planning process and progress to date. In addition, it presents the following:

  • The goals of the plan as determined with input from the community;
  • A summary of data gathered through research, stakeholder interviews, public meetings, community survey, field  observations and a review of available relevant information (i.e., GIS data, adopted plans, and other relevant policy  documents);
  • A community profile, which summarizes demographic information about the community;
  • Nationally accepted service standards that provide guidance in local investment decisions;
  • An inventory and assessment of the existing facilities and programs in and around Davidson.

The results of the assessment inform this Parks and Recreation Master Plan and supporting recommendations for implementation.
