— The Durham City Council was expected to tackle two issues at its meeting Monday.

The City Council was expected to vote to give Blue Cross Blue Shield the naming rights to an atrium at the Durham Performing Arts Center. The center is next to the American Tobacco Historic District.

The $44 million facility will offer a variety of performances throughout the year.

The Durham City Council was also expected to vote on a proposed skateboarding park. Officials with the city's Parks and Recreation Department said they need an additional $225,000 to make it happen.

If approved, the more than 10,000-square-foot facility would go up in the Central Park area.
