New Website: The Town of Davidson recently premiered a redesigned municipal website with the help of citizen input.
The site now includes a number of new features, such as a home page slideshow featuring news and information of note, integration of social media, an easy-to-navigate photo gallery, a "Services A-Z" page and a "How Do I?" section that can be tailored to community questions and concerns. The town sought public input on the redesign through an online survey in May 2011. The site can be found both at www. ci.davidson .nc.us and www. town of davidson .org .
