By clicking on the tabs at the top of this page you can find updates about the work underway, how to contact us, and answers to Frequently Asked Questions. On the left side of this page is a list of relevant and major topics related to the department’s work. This includes the tools needed to:  File a building permit (Submit a Permit); research a parcel or project (Maps & GIS, Planning Ordinance, Development Projects); or, understand our town’s approach to planning and development (Planning Principles).

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 areas, and provision of public spaces. Our quality of life is enhanced through the Town’s Planning Principles, the Davidson Planning Ordinance, and by assessing town needs through plans, reports, and studies.

1. Mooresville Boundary Agreement

Boundary agreements, also known as annexation agreements, are common growth management and growth control tools for communities to use for planning purposes.

The Town of Davidson has a boundary agreement with Charlotte, Cornelius, and Huntersville on the south side of the town’s jurisdiction. Davidson also has a boundary agreement on the east side of its jurisdiction with the City of Kannapolis. The town did not have a boundary agreement to the north where the jurisdictions of Mooresville and Iredell County meet Davidson. 

Both Mooresville and Davidson recently completed comprehensive planning efforts for future growth of the two jurisdictions. During those processes, the staffs discussed a proposed boundary agreement concept and developed a proposed boundary line for the comprehensive planning efforts. The Town of Mooresville approved the boundary agreement on June 20th and the Davidson BOC approved the agreement on June 28th.
