Thank you to everyone who participated at the Listening and Learning Workshops! If you missed participating in one of the Listening and Learning Workshops, it’s not too late to share your ideas! 
 
A web survey version of the workshop is available online. Community members can visit the ENGAGEDurham website to submit their thoughts and ideas on the two broad questions that were discussed at the Listening and Learning Workshops:  

  1. What does your ideal Durham look like? and 
  2. What else is on your mind about Durham? 

All responses are anonymous and all demographic questions are optional. The demographic questions will help Planning staff understand who we have heard from in the community and who we still need to reach to represent the full diversity of Durham.
