Show Your Support At The City Planning Meeting.

The North River Mixed Use Development rezoning proposal is going to be heard by the Durham Planning Commission on February 14th at 5:15 pm at Durham City Hall, 101 City Hall Plaza, Durham, NC

There is a lot of support and interest for this proposed development, but the change cannot happen unless the property is rezoned. While there is a vocal group against the rezoning, there are many people who want to see this mixed-use development move forward. We need supporters to attend the Planning Commission meeting on Feb. 14th at 5:15 pm sharp. We only need you to come show your support and attend the meeting. You will not be required to speak.

It's unfortunate the public hearing is on St. Valentine’s Day, but what a special way to show your sweetie you care by bringing him or her to the Planning Commission meeting and sharing in our civic duty. :)

If you cannot attend, please email the Planning Commission to indicate your support for North River Village, a mixed-use development for northwest Durham.

Publix Lease Agreement

Latta Road Improvements

The transportation improvements to Latta Road are projected to cost about $2.1 million and will be paid by the developer. There are no publicly funded roadway improvements in either the City's Capital Improvement Program or the NCDOT 10-year Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) to even address the existing deficiency. 

By implementing the proposed improvements, existing 1200 foot long queues in the morning peak hour will be reduced to about 275 feet; even with the additional traffic generated by the new development.
