Durham CAN and tenants fight for basic repairs to bring houses up to code
On October 26th, all Mayoral and City Council candidates pledged before 612 Durham CAN leaders to support building and preservation of affordable housing, as well as jobs for youth and returning citizens.
All candidates pledged to invest, if elected, $2 million dollars on basic repairs to 54 properties which will now be affordable in perpetuity. During the public meeting CAN leaders also celebrated the future use of two publicly owned parcels of land (two and nineteen acres respectively) for the construction of hundreds of affordable housing units near a future transit development. Durham CAN will work on affordable housing and jobs for youth and returning citizens.
