Durham County partners with the City of Durham on efforts around collaboration and innovation. Since Spring 2015, the City and County regularly have held IdeaLab, a forum that brings employees from across the organizations together to brainstorm ideas of ways they can better work together. IdeaLab also serves as a training ground or “workshop” environment for disciplines and processes around innovation. To learn more about IdeaLab, contact County Strategic Initiative Manager Michael Davis at and City Strategic Initiatives Manager Josh Edwards at

In addition to City-County innovation efforts, current City-County Partnership projects include:

  • Durham YouthWork Internship Program
  • Joint Economic Development Strategic Plan
  • Open Data
  • Trees Across Durham
  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Downtown Gateways Beautification
  • City-County International City/County Management Association Fellowship
