Parade Notice and Grand Marshal Announcement:

The 2024 Durham Memorial Day Parade will take place on Monday, May 27th. The parade will step off at 9:15AM at the corner of Haddam Quarter Road and Main Street, and then continue down Main Street to the Durham Town Green. Parade participants should assemble at the corner between 8:15 and 8:30. 


Immediately following the parade there will be a ceremony at the Town Green honoring our nation’s servicemen and servicewomen. The parade will take place rain or shine.


Mr. Elmer Clark will be the 2024 Durham Memorial Day Parade Grand Marshal. Clark is a life long resident of the Town of Durham and a US Army veteran. He graduated from Durham High School in 1959 and Quinnipiac College in 1963.


Upon completing college, Clark volunteered for the Army in July of 1963. He was assigned to the 9th Hospital Medical Command in Heidelberg, West Germany for 31 months. He served honorably in a Personnel Office assigning orders to Doctors and Nurses to one of eleven hospitals under the 9th Hospital’s command. While in Germany, he attained the rank of Sergeant (E-5). 


While in West Germany, Clark attained permission to travel through East Germany into the divided City of Berlin. Interestingly, Clark is one of the few people in the world who can say he’s seen the Berlin Wall from both sides. Clark left the service in 1966. He returned to his home town, and he has lived with his wife in Durham ever since.

The Durham Planning & Zoning Commission is currently in the process of updating its Residential Zoning Regulations and Zoning Map, and is seeking input from the public.  Reasons for revising the regulations and map include the following:


  • Existing residential zoning regulations have not been updated for many years;
  • Uses permitted under the regulations should be updated to reflect modern laws and practices;
  •  Minimum lot sizes would be revised to improve housing affordability, and diversity of housing stock;
  • Alignment with the town’s Affordable Housing Plan which recommends increased density, infill development, and promoting multi-family housing;
  • Two-acre Zoning may be considered exclusionary; 
  • Alignment with Section 2.6 of the Durham Plan of Conservation & Development, which recommends that consideration be given to evaluating current lot sizes for both residential and multi-family homes;
  • Variance requests would be reduced, by reducing the number of non-conforming lots;
  • Layout and readability of the document to improve clarity for the users.

All questions related to the proposed regulation and map should be directed to Ms. Robin Newton, Town Planner at: rnewton@townofdurhamct.org. 

Previous 2-21-24 Public Hearing

In addition, the Planning & Zoning Commission invites the public to submit verbal and/or written comments at its Public Hearing on April 17, 2024, at 7:00 PM.  For your convenience, this hearing will be conducted both in-person at Town Hall and via Zoom Teleconference.  For more information, please visit the town website at: www.townofdurhamct.org

Overview:

In March 2023, the Planning and Zoning Commission of the town of Durham undertook a project to review and update the town’s Residential Zoning Regulations and Zoning Map. 

This review included an in-depth examination of properties throughout the town; including the size of the lots, the permitted uses, the actual uses, and how this compared to the current Zoning regulations. 

One of the goals of the commission was to reduce the number of Non-Conforming lots in the town, as this would reduce the need for variance requests; and provide opportunities for smaller lots to improve the affordability and diversity of our housing stock; without compromising the soils, ground water, or environment in our town.  It should be recognized that the development any lot (regardless of size) must still comply with the minimum health standards for septic and potable water established by the state and town. 

The work of the commission culminated in the introduction of two new zoning districts (for a total of four) and the re-naming of existing districts; as well as consideration of different bulk and area requirements based on the built environment and Use Table. 

The four (4) districts being proposed would be known as: 

R-10: ¼ acre (Main Street) 
R-20: ½ acre
R-40: 1 acre
R-80: 2 acres

The proposed draft language continues to maintain the current side-yard setback protections for dwellings that were constructed prior to July 15, 1979.  

The commission also combined uses that were similar in nature; and definitions were added for uses that were previously undefined. Some of these uses include Daycare (i.e.: Child Day Care Center, Family Day Care Center, Group Home Day Care), which was updated for consistency with Connecticut’s General Statutes; Healthcare Facilities and Assisted Living Facilities (i.e.: Hospitals, Urgent Care Facilities, Nursing Homes, etc.); and Places of Worship (i.e.: Churches, Charitable/ Religious Organizations, etc.).  In updating the regulations, the commission also included references to Short-Term Rentals, Home-based Businesses, and Excavation and Earth Removal.

NOTICE OF PRESIDENTIAL PREFERENCE PRIMARY

CONFIRM YOUR PARTY AFFILIATION BEFORE JANUARY 3, 2024


The Presidential Preference Primary is scheduled for Tuesday, April 2, 2024. 

Connecticut voters who have been registered with a political party prior to January 3, 2024 (90 days prior to the primary) may vote in their party’s primary.  In Connecticut, unaffiliated voters are not permitted to vote in a primary election.

It has come to the attention of Registrars of Voters throughout Connecticut that residents who completed a form at the Department of Motor Vehicles for a change of name, change of address, or for any other reason, may find that their voter registration status was inadvertently changed from a member of a political party to “unaffiliated” due to a glitch in the DMV’s system. The Secretary of the State is aware of this issue and is working with DMV officials to address it.

To protect your right to vote in the April primary, voters are strongly encouraged to confirm their party affiliation status before January 3, 2024.  By law, only Connecticut voters registered with a political party may vote in a primary election AND voters must have been a registered member of that party for at least ninety (90) days prior to the date of the primary

There are several ways to confirm your party affiliation status.  Durham Registrars of Voters can be reached by phone at 860-343-6719.  Office hours are limited, so you may have to leave a voice message. Your call will be returned as quickly as possible.  Registrars can be reached by email at jscagnelli@townofdurhamct.org or at hpetit@townofdurhamct.org .  Both Registrars can confirm party affiliation for voters of all political parties as well as for unaffiliated voters.

The quickest and easiest way to check your party affiliation status is to go to the website of the Secretary of the State of Connecticut at https://portaldir.ct.gov/sots/LookUp.aspx.  After entering your name, date of birth, and the town where you live, you will immediately be provided with your voter registration information including your party affiliation.

After you confirm your current party affiliation status and determine that it is correct, no further action is needed.  If your current party affiliation status is incorrect, or if it is correct but you wish to change it, a new Voter Registration Form must be completed, signed, and submitted prior to January 3, 2024.  Voter Registration Forms may be picked up from outside the Registrar of Voters office at Durham Town Hall or from the Town Clerk.  You can request that a form be mailed to you by calling or emailing the Registrars of Voters office.  Once completed, the Form should be mailed or delivered to the Registrar’s Office or the Town Clerk.

The voter’s signature is required to make a change in party affiliation, so be sure to sign the Voter Registration Form before submitting it to protect your right to vote in the April 2024 Presidential Preference Primary election.

UR Community Cares® and Durham Human Services created Durham Community Cares as a strategy to help town residents with chores and isolation.
They have been collaborating to determine a plan to improve the lives of residents. 

Durham, CT, August 22, 2023 –
Durham Community Cares launched in August 2023 to support residents aged 70 or over and other adults who have temporary or permanent disabilities.

The Durham Human Services Department has partnered with UR Community Cares, HQ in Manchester, CT, to use its website to enroll individual volunteers who want to assist people in need.  Organizations can participate, businesses and civic groups can have volunteer days, the high school can have students volunteer together, and religious groups can get their youth groups involved. UR Community Cares is grateful to have received donations from Durham Human Services to enroll residents in need of help. Now those residents can safely connect with neighbors to get assistance via www.URCommunityCares.org.

The needs for assistance are large. The Social Services Coordinator Morgan Perry reports “Many people need or will need assistance with tasks that may have once come easy, from house chores to yard work to shopping and transportation. UR Community Cares helps fill the gaps in services that are needed for many older adults. Help with such tasks contributes to the overall goal of folks being able to live at home for as long as possible”

“In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the negative effects of social isolation. Maintaining connections with people is a critical component in keeping a high quality of life.” said Perry.

Michelle Puzzo, co-founder and President of UR Community Cares, says, “Our website allows for a streamlined source of free support for household tasks, yard work, companionship, and local transportation, so people can keep living safely in their homes. Many are looking for transportation as they no longer drive, need help around the house after recovering from surgery and, most importantly, create vital social bonds that will stave off isolation and loneliness.” Individuals can use the service online on their own or with the assistance of friends, family, or other helpers, or they can call in for phone assistance.

The Town of Durham Human Services Department committed $1,000 of funds to start the service. Although the service is free to each individual volunteer and each recipient of services, Durham Community Cares must raise one hundred dollars on behalf of each individual to pay a one-time charge covering a criminal record and sex offender check, driver safety record if appropriate, insurance, and computer system costs.

“We are looking for eager volunteers to make a beneficial effect. As neighbors are aging and often have less family around, we all need to be better connected,” says Puzzo.

If any Durham resident or business wishes to contribute to this community program to increase its presence in the Durham community, they can sign up online at https://urcommunitycares.org/ or contact the Durham Human Services Department at (860) 349-3153 or mperry@townofdurhamct.org.  

About UR Community Cares

Recognizing the challenges faced by older adults and those with temporary or permanent disabilities, Michelle Puzzo, UCONN alumni, founded UR Community Cares in February 2019. UR Community Cares digital platform was built to match those in need with those in the same community who are eager to help.
