Durham Planning Academy
About The Durham Planning Academy
The Planning Academy is an opportunity to learn more about how the planning process works in Durham, how to use available planning tools, and how to equitably engage in planning work. We want to uplift learning and teaching with an emphasis on supporting marginalized communities. Whether you’re a resident, community leader, subject expert, young person, or someone who wants to learn more about Planning, the Planning Academy is for you! The sessions will provide tools and skills to help navigate the planning processes, learn more about development and how it is regulated in North Carolina, and further understand the history of planning in Durham.
The Fall 2023 Planning Academy Applications are now CLOSED!
Although the applications are now closed, you will have an opportunity to view the recorded sessions on our YouTube channel.
