Take the survey

The City and County are beginning work on a new Comprehensive Plan – the community’s vision for shaping Durham’s future growth – and a new Transit Plan. From November 14 to 19, the City and County of Durham hosted a series of community engagement events called Listening and Learning Workshops. At these workshops the community shared their thoughts, ideas and opinions about Durham. These ideas will shape the goals for the new Comprehensive Plan and new Transit Plan.
