●  Durham Neighborhood College Makes a Comeback
Residents looking to play a more active role in their neighborhoods and the Durham community will get their chance to learn more about the strategic plans in the 2018 Durham Neighborhood College, a class designed specifically for residents to learn about the organization, operations and services of their local City and County governments.

After a two-year hiatus, the award-winning Durham Neighborhood College program will return this fall with an emphasis on showing participants how the strategic plans guide government officials in the development of sound planning and operations.

City and County employees are invited to apply for the seven-week course. For more information or to apply online, visit the County's Neighborhood College webpage. The application deadline is August 3rd. 

●  Durham Seeks Input on Zoning Changes to Expand Housing Choices Fast-paced population growth, limited availability of developable tracts and a renewed preference for in-town living has led to a housing availability and affordability challenge for Durham. To address this issue, the Durham City-County Planning Department is now seeking input on changes that are needed to Durham’s existing zoning rules to help eliminate regulatory barriers and expand housing options.

The deadline to complete the online survey is August 15, 2018. For more information about this project, contact Jacobson at (919) 560-4137, ext. 28247 or by email at
