About: Durham County Library will host Preservation Durham, an open discussion led by Benjamin Filippo, Executive Director of Preservation Durham, on Thursday, July 7 at 7:00 p.m. at Main Library, 300 N. Roxboro St.

Durham was built on working-class housing and mill villages, which provided an opportunity for downtown living to many who otherwise would not have had that opportunity. Now that Durham is facing a tremendous housing crunch, displacement and affordability issues, it is more important than ever to retain small-format homes for Durham’s workforce—teachers, police officers, administrators. Attend this event to discuss ways to coordinate housing, economic development and preservation while building equity into all those threads.
