The City of Durham is committed to providing meaningful access to
city services and resources for Durham residents who are Limited English
Proficient (LEP) or who don't speak English.
Positioned in the Strategic Plan Goal 3: Connected, Engaged, &
Diverse Communities - The City of Durham adopted a Language Access Plan in 2019
to better serve the community and make our city a more welcoming and
inclusive place to live, work, and play for all. Currently, our largest
LEP population is Spanish, and through interpretation and translation
services, we can advance meaningful access to City services and information.
