Durham Reschedules Patterson Place Design District Re-Zoning and Text Amendment Public Meeting
October 25 Meeting to Collect Resident Input on Proposed Design District in Patterson Place
DURHAM, N.C. – With the remnants of Hurricane Michael expected to impact North Carolina tomorrow, the Durham City-County Planning Department is rescheduling their Patterson Place Design District Re-Zoning and Text Amendment public meeting to later this month.
The meeting, originally set for Thursday, October 11, has now been rescheduled to Thursday, October 25 at 7 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall of the Eno River Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, located at 4907 Garrett Rd., Durham.
At the October 25 meeting, staff will begin the meeting with a presentation on the full text amendment proposed to create a new design district zoning designation for the Patterson Place Compact Neighborhood Tier. Attendees will also be able to review the proposal, ask questions of staff, and provide input on the draft regulations and sub-district boundaries. Compact Neighborhoods are envisioned, over the long term and with the implementation of design district zoning, to evolve into walkable mixed-use communities with higher density.
For residents who cannot attend the meeting, the draft text is available on the project website and meeting materials will be posted following the meeting. Staff requests that comments be submitted by Friday, November 9.
