2022 ULI Spring Meeting
ULI Advisory Services Impact Forum: Economic Opportunity in Durham, NC
Panel for Fayetteville Street Corridor in Durham NC
From North Carolina Central University to Liberty Street, the Fayetteville Street Corridor spans about a mile and a half in the City of Durham NC. Through the ULI Advisory Services Panel program with support from the ULI Foundation, this is predominantly African American neighborhood requested guidance on Community-Centered Strategies for Housing, Transit and Development Serving the Fayetteville Street Heritage Corridor.
This Forum session will provide the sponsors (City Officials and Neighborhood representatives) guidance on how to define and refine the ULI panel assignment scheduled for May 2022. Join us and lean how this community is addressing equity and economic development and how to empower local residents, businesses and property owners.
Many African American and other communities of color suffer from disinvestment, a shortage of municipal resources, minimization of political and community organizational structures, absence of retail purchasing power, the perception of high crime, and a host of other problems that specifically affect the ability of such neighborhoods to attract real estate investment.
The Urban Land Institute (ULI) is proposing a series of Economic Opportunity panels that focus on underinvested communities—with a specific concentration on African American neighborhoods—looking at prospects for more equitable economic development that improves economic, social, and environmental resilience.
