Next Bull City Open Streets Coming Up Tomorrow!

Bull City Open Streets invites you to North East Central Durham
June 9th 4-7pm

During Bull City Open Streets, Driver Street, from Southgate to Ashe, will be closed to vehicle traffic, and OPEN to all on foot, bike, skate, etc.  There will be a bike rodeo for kids (4-5pm)—they will learn basic bike safety skills.  Check out the Durham police K-9 dogs, and grab a tasty and refreshing bike blended smoothie!  There will also be a zumba class, drumming performance, demonstrations of African dance, and demonstrations of skateboard tricks.  But wait, wait, there’s more…there will be a Kids Zone, where at 5pm we will have a contest for the kids in: jump ropes, hula hoops, dance off, and basketball hoops. Kids can enter a drawing to win a bike!

We hope to see you out tomorrow for some fun!  For more information and a pdf flyer.

Energy Funding for Northeast Central Durham

Residents in Northeast Central Durham will have more help saving household energy, thanks to two new grants received this month by Clean Energy Durham.

The Piedmont Conservation Council awarded Clean Energy Durham $12,352 to hire and train a part-time employee to help encourage Northeast Central Durham residents to sponsor and attend energy-saving workshops between now and May.

The State Energy Office awarded Clean Energy Durham $85,945 to hire and train two NCCU undergraduates to work part-time and one recent NCCU graduate fellow to work full-time in Northeast Central Durham over the next academic year.  During the following year, the graduate fellow will be placed in the Cooperative Extension office in Warrenton to help bring the Clean Energy Durham model to Warren County.

Clean Energy Durham has been helping the Northeast Central Durham neighborhood save energy since early 2008.  This funding will allow us to increase the variety of innovative approaches we are using to engage people in helping their neighbors save more and more money on energy.  See Herald-Sun coverage and press release.

PAC 1 and NECD Neighborhood Growing Active Energy Group

A growing number of Northeast Central Durham residents (which includes PAC 1) are helping to develop an active neighborhood energy efficiency group. Each event that Clean Energy Durham sponsors has enthusiastic NECD volunteers interested in learning simple low cost and no cost ways to save energy. Three NECD residents have graduated from the Clean Energy Durham Super Trainer class in May and are eligible to teach the CED hands-on workshop and are anxiously waiting to help other NECD residents learn easy energy saving tips.

In addition to the Super Trainer graduates, the East Durham neighborhood is one of eleven neighborhoods, and the only NECD neighborhood, to be selected to participate in the Neighborhood Energy Retrofit Program (NERP). Email if you want to know how you can host a workshop with one of the NECD Super Trainers or email if you want to learn more about the NERP program.
