Victory! But our fight is not over.
Aug 19, 2020 —
Dear Braggtown residents and Durham neighbors,
Braggtown won the first round of the fight for equitable development in our neighborhood! Last week, Durham’s City/County Planning Commission unanimously voted NO against a huge development proposed for Braggtown.
First and most importantly, we want to say THANK YOU to everyone who signed our petition, spoke at the Commission meeting and supported our cause. This victory would not be possible without your voice and your energy.
But our fight is not over. Durham’s City Council will make the final decision on this development. Once the City Council meeting for this development is scheduled, we will call on you to support Braggtown again.
For now, please share our petition for equitable development in Braggtown so we can build our network and momentum leading up to this crucial City Council meeting.
