NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN, that a special meeting of the Town Board of the Town of Durham, Greene County, New York at the Town Hall, East Durham, New York, will be held on October 26th, 6:30 PM in the evening to develop the 2022 Town Budget and any other business that may arise.

Dated: October 18, 2021 

Janet Partridge, Town Clerk 

Town of Durham 

Over the past year the Broadband Subcommittee of Durham Connect has been working on a report showing which residential and business properties within Durham are able to access broadband service, and proposing what actions should be taken, and by whom, to provide affordable and reliable access to those Durham residents who don’t currently have it.

That report – “Broadband in Durham” – has now been completed, and it will be discussed by the town board at its meeting at 7:30 pm on Tuesday October 5. Members of the public are welcome to attend. The meeting will be at the Durham Town Hall, 7309 State Route 81, East Durham, NY.  

Here is the report:   pdf Broadband In Durham Draft of 27 September 2021 (842 KB)

There is also a Hydrologic Modeling packet that has too many pages to upload, but can be viewed at the town clerk's office by calling 518-239-6122 ext1.  

We are looking for additional volunteers to participate with the Economic Development Working Group of Durham Connect which is focused on expanding business opportunities in Durham. 

 “Economic Development” sounds like a very big effort for our small town but it’s really looking at our community and working with our neighbors to help identify opportunities to improve the local economy. 

Here are examples of projects the Eco Dev Working Group needs volunteers to help get off the ground:

  • We have a number of artists and wood workers in Durham. We’d like to create a link to our Town website which would feature some information on our varied, talented and skilled neighbors.
  • Within Durham and the surrounding areas, we strongly believe we have the ability to create a Farmers’ Market.
  • Our Building Assessor, David Cunningham is helping us develop online information for those interested in opening a business in Durham or even simply renovating their home.

All of these projects demonstrate our local gifts, existing economic opportunities and present Durham as an accommodating place to do business and own a home.

So, if you are interested in working on just one of these projects or continued participation in the team as we develop more ideas, please phone or email our Town Clerk, Janet Partridge.

Thank you.
