There are many Facebook pages for Durham community updates. I suggest homeowners should follow some of these pages to stay up to date on community matters. For example, Facebook has pages for basically every department in Durham. If you’re an avid Facebook user, these are the pages I recommend following. However, these are my recommendations. Please let me know if you have others!
Traffic and Weather Alerts
North Carolina Department of Transportation: https://www.facebook.com/NCDOT
If you want regular updates on major traffic problems or major weather disasters, you should follow the North Carolina Department of Transportation. They do a great job of keeping you updated when there’s flooding or icing and other disasters that affect the roads and highways.
Durham Police Department: https://www.facebook.com/TheDurhamPolice
If you’d like to stay aware of safety issues in the Durham area, you should follow the Durham Police Department on Facebook. They do a surprisingly good job
Fun Things to Do
Durham Parks and Recreation: https://www.facebook.com/dprplaymore
Durham has a very active Department of Parks and Recreation. It is actually really amazing how many different free activities they have for Durham residents. I highly recommend checking out their calendar and following their Facebook page to see what’s going on.
Discover Durham: https://www.facebook.com/DiscoverDurhamNC
Discover Durham is your resource for upcoming events in the Durham area. When it comes to Durham community updates, this resource is one of the fun ones. You’ll find all sorts of concerts, art exhibits, and other fun events here. Definitely check it out! However, not all people let them know of their events. If you’ve got a community event, you need to let them know.
Durham Farmer’s Market: https://www.facebook.com/durhamfarmersmarketnc
One of my favorite things to do is visit the Durham Farmer’s Market. Fortunately, we have a great farmer’s market!
Durham Community Updates
Durham County Government: https://www.facebook.com/DurhamCountyGov
For general updates, check out the Durham County Government Facebook page. There’s rarely something fun. However, it’s important to stay updated. For example, they were great letting small business owners know about grants throughout the pandemic. Fortunately, Durham is great about their updates.
In conclusion, Facebook is a great way to keep track of Durham community updates. If you’re an avid Facebook user, add these to your follow list. Additionally, be sure to set them as priority so you see them in your news feed. Above all, follow those places that interest you! Finally, let me know if I’ve missed anything. I’m happy to add to the list.
