About the Commission

The Durham City-County Appearance Commission is made up of 11 members: 5 are appointed by the City Council; and 6 appointed by the Board of County Commissioners. See the commissions by-laws.


The mission of the DCCAC is to cultivate visual appeal and recognize the benefits of good design, which enhance quality of life.

Member Requirements

Members shall reside within the jurisdiction of the appointing authority. City and County taxes must not reflect any delinquency at the time of submission of the application. While encouraging applicants with expertise in aesthetics, attempts shall also be made to assure that the appointments represent a cross section of the community. Members serve without compensation. Applications for appointment can be obtained from the City Clerk's office or the County Clerk's office.

Resident Participation Opportunities

All meetings are open to the public, but if a resident intends to submit an item for discussion at a future meeting, staff should be notified as soon as possible. The deadlines for requesting to have an item on an agenda are published with the schedule of meetings.
