Walk the Line
The Durham Belt Line project has tremendous transformational potential for Downtown Durham in its continuing evolution into a great place to live. That transformational power however brings a real responsibility to the community to ensure that the project benefits all of Durham. Our overall approach to the project is a focus on equity, thoroughness, accuracy, high quality design, and implementation.
A community open house to share the draft Master Plan and obtain feedback was held at the Durham Nativity School in June of 2018. Review the boards that were shared at the meeting below.
The first public workshop for the Master Plan was held in September 2017. Review information from the meeting below.
