Update from: Bonita Green, Merrick Moore Community Center
TreesDurham was so happy to help advocate for the rezoning of Faucette Ave -- which will hopefully become the Samuel Green Sr. Community Garden. Many people were consulted and lent their expertise and time through this process. Equally as important were those that lent their voices in support of our community. Those voices really matter during these types of processes and showed each person's commitment to Merrick Moore and making our neighborhood a safe place. Those voices were heard last night in that the planning commission gave a unanimous 12-0 no vote to the rezoning at Faucette Avenue!!!
What this means: the Planning Commission is an advisory board that sends its recommendation to the City Council who makes the final decision. Generally, it takes 6 to 8 weeks for that meeting to be scheduled.
