  • Durham County Government is moving into the next phase of the redevelopment of two County-owned sites located at the 300 and 500 blocks of East Main Street.
  • In February 2018, community input was sought on the public vision for the county-owned sites. The input gathered from the three previous sessions was used to shape the guiding public interests for development on these sites.
  • The Durham Board of County Commissioners is now seeking input on two proposed development plans. Both plans under consideration feature a mix of multifamily market and affordable housing, ground-floor office and retail space, and parking.  The commissioners will use the input to make next-step decisions regarding potential development.
  • The public is invited to attend one of three input sessions, scheduled July 17th, July 28th and August 2nd, to learn about and provide feedback on the proposed plans.
  • Residents are strongly encouraged to attend a face-to-face session. Those unable to attend can complete an online feedback form regarding the proposed development plans by visiting
  • For project details, visit the County’s 300 and 500 E. Main Redevelopment project webpage or email Deputy Director of Engineering and Environmental Services Peri Manns at [email protected]
