Durham Soccer Proposal

  1. 1. BETTER DURHAM SOCCER Sept. 17, 2015
  2. 2. WELCOME TO DURHAM Founded after the Civil War, Durham became one of North Carolina's most prosperous towns with the growth of tobacco and textiles. Today's post-industrial city is home to Duke University and Medical Center, and to North Carolina Central University, the nation's oldest state liberal arts college for African-Americans. Today, the brick warehouses hum with nationally recognized restaurants, stylish lofts and a vibrant creative economy. Always diverse, the city now includes a booming Latino population. Population (2014) 251,893 Population (2010) 228,404 % increase, 2010-2014 +10.3% White 38.4% Black 39.5% Hispanic/Latino 13.9% Asian 4.8% Multiracial 2.7% Median household income $49,160 Mean household income $68,732 Sources http://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/states/37/3719000.html http://factfinder.census. gov/faces/tableservices/jsf/pages/productview.xhtml?src=bkmk
  3. 3. SOCCER IN DURHAM Durham has 14* public athletic fields of varying sizes, surfaces, and soccer-readiness. • To be on par with neighboring North Carolina cities Raleigh, Greensboro and Winston-Salem, Durham would have to add ~14 more fields. • To meet national standards of soccer field density (1 field/5,000 residents), Durham would have to add approximately 40 more fields. • Of the state’s 100 counties, Durham County ranks 62nd for soccer resources. *Of these 14 athletic fields, only about half are consistently suitable for soccer, having markings, goals, lights, and artificial turf or well-maintained grass.

  4. 4. SOCCER IN DURHAM Here’s how soccer-playing children in Durham are presently served: • Youth club soccer, such as Triangle Futbol Club Alliance and Triangle United Soccer Association, which also operate recreational divisions • Charitable programs such as Durham Bulls Youth Athletic Leagues and Project Golazo • Private recreational associations • School teams (one of Durham’s six main public high schools has no varsity boys team) • YMCA and church leagues • Durham Parks and Recreation (leagues and academies for girls, pre-schoolers, etc.) • Latino associations
  5. 5. OLD NORTH DURHAM PARK 310 W. Geer St. Located in Durham’s booming Central Park district, this full-size space is the only public soccer field located downtown. With well-designed improvements, it is poised to become a recreational jewel of the city. Schools Seven public and charter schools located within 1.9 miles. An eighth, more distant school provides bus transportation to this site. Challenges No bathrooms or indoor space. League play currently banned. Numerous stakeholders invested in the area, including residents on northern boundary who may object to installation of lights. May be other difficulties in reconciling competing priorities, as seen during 2011 discussions. Conditions have changed enough since then to warrant reopening dialogue.

  7. 7. EAST END PARK 1200 N. Alston Ave. Tucked away in the rapidly improving Cleveland-Holloway neighborhood, this park is a gem in the rough, waiting for a makeover. Schools Six public and charter schools located within 1.5 miles. Challenges The field is too small for anything but a 70-yard field. No indoor facilities. Bathrooms located across busy street.
  8. 8. VISUALIZATION: EAST END PARK
  9. 9. HOLTON CAREER AND RESOURCE CENTER 401 N. Driver St. Exciting social initiatives are reviving the once-thriving district of Old East Durham. This site features indoor facilities and other children’s programs. The fields are popular with Latino youth leagues. Schools Five public and charter schools located within 1.6 miles. Challenges Past efforts to install lights at the soccer fields have met with resistance from residents in the vicinity.
  10. 10. VISUALIZATION: HOLTON CENTER
  11. 11. WEAVER STREET RECREATION CENTER 3000 E. Weaver St. Convenient from all points in South Durham and located in proximity to high- and low- income neighborhoods, this spacious field has room for a 100-yard pitch and lights, and has indoor facilities on site. Schools Four public schools located within 1.9 miles of facility. Challenges Not in a visible location, so may be difficult to educate potential users about its existence. Also likely to be used for adult league play by users coming from outside neighborhoods.
