Davidson’s Vision and Core Value #5
The Davidson Mayor and Board of Commissioners have discussed changes to the Town of Davidson’s vision statement and core value #5 over the past few months. After some discussion, the mayor and commissioners recommend the following for a new vision and core value #5. A full list of the town’s vision, mission, and core values is on our website at: www.townofdavidson.org/missionstatement
Davidson is a town that has long been committed to controlling its own destiny as a distinct, sustainable, and sovereign municipality. Our town’s sense of community is rooted in citizens who respect each other; in racial and socioeconomic diversity; in pedestrian orientation; and in the presence of a liberal arts college. We believe our history and setting guide our future.
Original Core Value #5:
Davidson’s traditional character is that of a small town, so land planning will reflect its historic patterns of village-centered growth, with connection of neighborhoods, preservation of rural area, and provision of public spaces.
Core value #5 will be moved up into the #2 position in our list of core values, although the list of core values is not ranked in priority order.
The Davidson Mayor and Commissioners have directed staff to gather feedback via the Open Town Hall portal on the website and publicize a public comment period at the April 10 meeting. The board of commissioners will consider a vote at the April 24 meeting.
The Davidson Mayor and Commissioners would like your feedback. Please consider taking this 4-question survey.
