Upcoming Community Meeting for residents in the Southeast Durham Area 

A major part of creating a Comprehensive Plan is to work with the community to develop a new future land use plan and policies. To start this work, the Planning Department has been asked by City Council to focus first on the southeastern area of Durham to provide early guidance before the entire Comprehensive Plan is adopted. Planning staff is hosting a virtual informational meeting oThursday, May 20 at 6pm. Staff will share themes we’ve heard so far about transportation, housing developments, and environmental concerns for this area, share more about the Comprehensive Plan process, and answer questions.
