For the Oct. 18, 2015 Charlotte Observer: It’s still just an idea, without financing or developers, but Davidson residents are hotly debating a proposal to redevelop about 3.5 acres of town-owned land around Town Hall on South Main Street. I talked to Rusty Knox, who started the Facebook group “Paradise Lost,” and collected background information about the “catalyst study” in advance of a public meeting Tuesday, Oct. 20.
