No


Why or why not?
The current climate in Davidson is to STOP growth! Where it says preservation of our rural areas, non-voting people in the ETJ have the RIGHT to develop their land even if their neighbors don't want them to.

Do you approve of the proposed vision?

No


Why or why not?
Not sure what a town can do to promote 'racial and socioecomomic diversity'. The town can't recruit Asians, African-Americans, Latinos, etc. to come live here, but they shouldn't stop them either. As far as 'socioeconomic diversity', we have certainly received a big helping of that with the huge new low priced developments under construction right now. Enough promotion of that. Sounds like a bunch of 'feel good' words that don't really mean anything. And, why can't we have pedestrian AND bicycling orientation?

The original version is fine. What is the point of this exercise? I see no need to change the existing vision; move on, please.


Do you approve of the proposed Core Value #5?
No


Why or why not?
The original version is succinct, grammatically correct, and comprehensive. No need to change.

Do you approve of the proposed vision?

No


Why or why not?
It doesn't seem to be a material change or clarification of the original.


Do you approve of the proposed Core Value #5?
No


Why or why not?
Too wordy and again not a material change or solid clarification of the original. The benefit of this rewording exercise would seem to be in helping prevent the broad interpretations of this value experienced in the recent past. Vague language does not accomplish that.

Do you approve of the proposed vision?

No


Why or why not?
What is the purpose of changing municipal to small? Davidson is not a small college town as it was 50 years ago. The town that encompasses the college is a separate municipality within a rapidly growing metropolitan area of 2 1/2 million people. If the objective is to limit growth to a certain population, say so and how that might be achieved.


Do you approve of the proposed Core Value #5?
No


Why or why not?
Ambiguous and vague. What is the objective of managing growth and how will it be accomplished?
What are the historic patterns that new village - centered growth will follow?
How does new development honor historic character?

Do you approve of the proposed vision?

No


Why or why not?
Slight changes. Change "small-town" back to original "municipality"; more official and "small" is used several times. Your thoughts on changing "small" to "historic" liberal arts college; adds more significance to one of Davidson's noted landmarks.



Do you approve of the proposed Core Value #5?
No


Why or why not?
One suggestion: Davidson encompasses the origins of a small, historic, college town.
