A gym that costs between $40 and $50 a month for an individual will not be impacted by the city charging for parking. People who can't afford to park downtown ALSO cannot afford YMCA memberships. If the YMCA is worried about it, they can pay to lease additional parking around the YMCA for their members.
There are free gyms provided in Rec Centers by the City of Durham Parks and Recreation dept.
Well done. Thank you for writing about recovery and addiction.
if it's like the cigarette ban then I expect nothing to happen. People routine smoke in parks, on the sidewalks, and at bus stops. When it's called in to 911 or the non-emergency number as "there are people smoking weed under the shelter at the park" I can feel the 911 operator eye roll and weed is still illegal to possess or sell.
This is great! Officers take their cue from the leadership of the department. We need police who approach the community as members of the same.
Seriously there is no ground floor retail there? There are thousands of people there multiple times a week. There is a bustling area full of shops and restaurants. Why isn't the City and Park asking for ground floor retail instead of a parking garage?
Ground floor retail gets you Brightleaf. A parking garage entrance gets you the old Jack Tar downtown.
For context on Cleveland Holloway - those houses selling for less than $50k had massive problems, such as missing kitchens, bathrooms, HVAC, lack of wiring, lack of plumbing, etc. Yes, prices have gone up significantly, but the 'move right in' house for less than $50k has not been a reality since before the 2000s.
I think the key difference that strikes me is the choice; wrapped up in that choice is the ability to escape it at any point it becomes tiresome.
