What We’ve Heard
Between November 2019 and February 2020, over ONE THOUSAND residents told us what they wanted in their ideal Durham. There were a lot of common themes:
Affordable housing, good public transportation, access to quality food, safety, health and wellness, a sense of belonging, racial justice, good schools, opportunities for good jobs, places to learn and play, and a clean environment were among the top themes that residents told us they wanted for Durham.
Between Spring 2020 and Spring 2021 we heard from residents about what Durham’s future goals should be.
To write a new Comprehensive Plan we started by getting your feedback on what Durham’s future goals and objectives should be. These goals and objectives will guide how the plan is written, what recommendations are included in the plan, and it will also guide decisions for new development that is happening now.
The Community Goals and Objectives for the Comprehensive Plan were adopted by the City Council on June 21 and the Board of County Commissioners on June 28!
