You’re Invited to the Listening and Learning Workshops

By October 2, 2019 November 15th, 2019 News

We’re here to Listen! Join us at the Listening and Learning Workshops, ENGAGEDurham’s first community engagement event. As someone who lives, works, owns a business, goes to school or simply cares about the future of Durham, your opinions and ideas are valued. Bring your ideas to the workshops!

 

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. We invite you to join us at the Listening and Learning Workshops, ENGAGEDurham’s first community engagement opportunity.

Five Listening and Learning Workshops (identical in format and content) are scheduled between November 14-19 in locations throughout the community. To begin, these workshops will include information to help you understand what a Comprehensive Plan is and does, how it’s relevant to you, and to provide an overview of the process. They will also provide an opportunity to provide input on the new Transit Plan. Then the majority of the session will create space for community members to share with each other and with City and County staff their experience of Durham today, in the past, and their hopes for our future. This input will shape our community’s vision for Durham’s future and will be the foundation for creating these new plans.

All workshops are identical so choose a two-hour event to attend that is most convenient for you. Doors open 30 minutes early. Each workshop will be about 2 hours long. Spanish interpretation, free child care and light refreshments will be provided.

If you’re passionate about shaping Durham’s future this is your chance for your voice to be an integral part of this process. Bring your ideas to the workshops!
