Durham CAN packs St. Philip's fellowship hall
175 Durham CAN leaders packed a church to declare an affordable housing crisis in Durham and secured public commitments from the CEO of Durham Housing Authority and the five Durham County Commissioners in support of the construction of affordable housing at two publicly owned lots in exclusive downtown Durham. It is expected that the new development will yield over 200 affordable rental units.
All 5 County Commissioners attend and make commitments to support Durham CAN's proposal for affordable housing.
