Durham Seeks Input on Future of Current Police Headquarters Site

Durham Seeks Input on Future of Current Police Headquarters Site


The City of Durham wants community input on what should happen to a prominent block on the western edge of downtown Durham. 


Currently, the four-acre site is being used as the headquarters for the Durham Police Department. However, the site will become vacant in fall 2018, when the department moves to its newly constructed headquarters along East Main Street. When this occurs, the City will no longer have a municipal purpose for the property and is looking for community input as to its future use.

 The City’s General Services Department is asking residents, businesses and other stakeholders to share their initial ideas, thoughts and concerns about the future of this property in the following ways: 

  • Complete an online survey located on the hhtp://durham.gov/3195/Future-of-the-Police-Headquarters-Site 
  • Drop in on a pop-up workshop hosted at various locations in-and-around downtown: 

Saturday, September 16 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Durham Farmers Market,

501 Foster Street 

Monday, September 18 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Durham City Hall, 101 City Hall Plaza

Tuesday, September 19 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Durham Station Transportation

Center, 515 West Pettigrew Street

Wednesday, September 20 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Durham Co-Op, 1111 West

Chapel Hill Street 

  • Attend a community workshop on Thursday, September 21 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Durham Armory, 220 Foster Street 

Any person with a disability may receive an auxiliary aid or service to effectively participate in these workshops by contacting the City’s ADA Coordinator at (919) 560-4197 or [email protected] no later than 48 hours before the meeting.
