NECD Livability Initiative
Clean Energy Durham is partnering with the Northeast Central Durham (NECD) Livability Initiative to enhance two Clean Energy Durham programs. The Neighborhood Energy Retrofit Program (NERP) will get help from the Multi-functional Community Green Spaces (Open Spaces) committee. Open Spaces is one of the five sub-committees for the NECD Livability Initiative. East Durham NERP volunteers Aggie Crews and Melvin Whitley recently met with Constance Stancil, the director of Durham Neighborhood Improvement Services and Lynwood Best, city liaison for the Open Spaces committee. The city representatives have already assisted the East Durham volunteers with their NERP community outreach, and they have also agreed to work with the volunteers to coordinate an activity that will focus on the housing exterior and contribute to the aesthetic appeal of the neighborhood. The idea is that the Livability project will enhance the indoor services provided by NERP. Clean Energy Durham will also work with the Safe and Healthy Environment committee of the Livability Initative to promote the signature Clean Energy Durham low-cost, no-cost hands-on, home energy efficiency workshop. Clean Energy Durham staff will work with community members to schedule and host workshops and increase the number of NECD residents who increase their energy savings.
