The General Services Department is managing the project with input from Neighborhood Improvement Services to ensure equitable participation. We will be working with residents, churches, schools, and many other organizations in East Durham, guided by the spirit and intent of the Equitable Community Engagement Blueprint.
A committee of Durham residents, many that live and work in the project areas, will meet monthly with the consultant team and staff to plan engagement activities and review project materials and concepts. The team will utilize community residents, including youth, to distribute and share information and lead/participate in events. Compensation is available.
