Durham Hosts Downtown Open Space Plan Open House

Wide open spaces contribute to the overall feel of a city and can either make it feel crowded or pleasantly open. That's why the City of Durham wants to hear from residents as it makes city planning decisions.

The Durham City/County Planning Department is hosting an Open House for the Draft Recommendations to the First-Ever Downtown Durham Open Space Plan on Thursday, May 16, 2013, from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. at The Temple Building at 302 W. Main St. Durham, N.C. 27701.

Fast Facts:
