SmART Vision Proposal for downtown Durham

  • Durham, NC 27701

In June, 2015, the City of Durham and the Durham Arts Council revealed the results of a visioning plan from the SmART Initiative Pilot Program that seeks to encourage communities in the state to promote arts and culture as economic development catalysts. Boston-based architect Mikyoung Kim designed the vision plan. The plan was paid for in part by a $30,000 grant from the N.C. Department of Cultural Resources. Eventual changes based off of these recommendations would need to be made by and paid for by public and private sources. The proposal suggests changes to public spaces in the Downtown/American Tobacco corridor.
