Triangle Transit and local governments
have heard from residents and community groups that it is important to make
sure that housing opportunities for residents at many different income levels
exist in neighborhoods along the proposed Durham-Orange Light Rail Transit
We have heard this concern and will be
hosting a Community Conversation with local urban planning researchers and
staff from the NC Justice Center about Transit-Oriented Development and
Affordable Housing on Friday, March 15th, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30
p.m. in the Durham City Hall Committee Room.
The event will include about 45-60 minutes
of presentations of recent research on affordable housing and transit, followed
by 90 minutes for community members to ask questions, make comments, and have a
broad discussion on this topic.
City of Durham and Town of Chapel Hill
staff will be available to contribute to discussions of specific issues in each
welcome and encouraged to attend.
