Petition to the Town Council of Davidson

This petition had 244 supporters

"The petitioners are citizens and residents of Davidson. We believe the eighteen-acre park land owned by the Town and located off Beaty street should not be sold. This land should be kept as a park not just for this generation but for the generations to come. This land was purchased by the Town for a park thirty-three (33) years ago; when land of this size was scarce and was difficult to find at a price the Town could afford. Today prices are higher and land like this in Davidson is even more scarce and can't be found at a price the Town can afford. Once this park land is sold, it can never be taken back. It will be gone forever. Don't let this happen. Keep the park!"

These exact words were used 20 years ago (1997) as citizens and residents of Davidson petitioned against the Town Council to turn this property into a park. Now in 2017, the same Town owned park is threatened with high density development and an inadequate park. This town [promised] park is way overdue and the Town should honor and memorialize Venie Clontz’s generosity for selling the land to the Town of Davidson for intentions and use of a park. Do the Right Thing!
