Rolling Hills community meeting Nov. 10

Posted by on Mon, Nov 2, 2009 at 2:02 PM

The city and planners for the revitalization of Rolling Hills and Southside, two neighborhoods just south of downtown, are holding a community meeting at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 10, at the Hayti Heritage Center at 804 Old Fayetteville St.

The public will be able to ask questions of the project's steering committee and learn about plans for Rolling Hills and Southside, two blighted and troubled communities. Southside is crime-ridden neighborhood rife with vacant lots and empty homes. Development of Rolling Hills stopped before it was completed, leaving a half-built neighborhood erected with public money. Read more >>

The city recently voted to spend $745,000 to plan for the revitalization of both communities. The public meeting Nov. 10 is one of the first where the general public may weigh in.

The planners also have tentatively scheduled design charettes -- public meetings on the design of the project -- for Nov. 16-20, said Larry Jarvis, assistant director of Durham's Community Development Department.
