To the Editor:
Regarding the Davidson Town Board’s leaning towards supporting a Conditional Planning Area amendment in Davidson Commons East (March 13, 2013, “Board scraps APFO, hints support for auto repair shop”), allowing a Woodie’s Auto Service center across the street from the Community School of Davidson and behind homes on Westside Terrace: I’d like to follow up on a quote attributed to my friend Commissioner Rodney Graham in the article, using it as a straw dog upon which to comment.

Construction of the MSC Industrial Direct corporate headquarters off Harbor Place Drive in Davidson is widely expected to spur related development in the coming years. The question is, what will it look like? Davidson’s Planning Board on Monday night got its first look at the draft of a new plan for the Exit 30 area that envisions new hotels, housing, offices and shops. The plan also incorporates a new I-77 overpass – with a separate pedestrian and bike path – that could improve the connection between Davidson Landing and the rest of town. Read the full story

Firefighters investigated two possible fires this week, including one residence on Elm Row Court in which the homeowners smelled a strong odor of smoke outside their home. Thermal imaging cameras and portable gas monitors helped firefighters determine no hazards were present. An I-77 driver also reported a fire either on a boat or along the bank of Lake Norman, but an investigation by fire crews turned up nothing.
A large tree limb broke off early Thursday morning, July 26, and blocked both lanes of traffic on Concord Road. Firefighters used tools to help open one lane of traffic, but Town of Davidson public works personnel had to be called to help remove the rest of the limb. Malfunctioning smoke detectors rounded out the rest of the week’s fire calls, and a tally of the week’s medical calls may be found below. Read the full story

Warm water and rapid algae growth are being blamed for an unusual fish kill last week at the pond in Roosevelt Wilson Park, off Griffith Street. Town and county officials say the recent warm, clear weather has spurred algae growth, which has reduced oxygen in the water, and likely caused the deaths of about 200 Gizzard Shad.
