Debbie was raised just a block away from Gerard Street. When she was asked to be part of this project, Royster joked, “I couldn’t say no!”
The Gerard-Jackson Street Better & Beautiful Project is a partnership between Clean Energy Durham, Durham Community Land Trustees, Habitat for Humanity, and Self-Help, as well as dozens of volunteers.

We’re excited to announce that the City of Durham has selected five neighborhoods to participate in Phase II of the Neighborhood Energy Retrofit Program (NERP): Fisher Heights, Northgate Park, Trinity Park, Parkwood, and Morehead Hill/West End (these two neighborhoods applied together). The initial meeting for the neighborhood volunteers who will serve as the liaisons for their neighborhood was held this week. Liaisons learned more detailed information about the NERP program requirements, and CED staff reviewed program documents with the volunteers and answered neighborhood liaison questions. We’re excited to hear more ideas from volunteers on how to increase neighborhood involvement!
