Re: “What Will It Take for Durham to Clean Up the Area around N.C. Central?

That's the way some may see it. Gentrify.
Some of this area is designated as historical. Years ago many prominent African Americans lived in these architecturally beautiful homes. This area should be restored with historical markers placed along Fayetteville St.and promoted as a tourism area to celebrate the lives and community of this area. These were homes of Durham's African American doctors,attorneys,bankers,politicians, busi ess owners, teachers, etc. Most people do not know the history of this area.
The community and city should require that all owners come together to discuss how to improve this area and not allow people to come in and purchase without some commitment to the enhancement of the community.
This area should be comparable to the Trinity area around Duke. It would benefit NCCU to be able to present a safer area around the campus with businesses that serve the community as well as the campus.
When I was a child this area was absolutely beautiful with manicured lawns, shaded porches and families who cared about this area. We can make this area come alive again. It takes the effort of city government and community to achieve this goal. We should start today with the slogan "Make Our Community Beautiful Again" and do it!
