UPDATE: After a lot of public input, city staff completed the master plan for the city's North Waterfront Park and presented it to Council on Monday. Now it's your turn to let us know what you think in this short survey:

View the entire DRAFT Master Plan for Wilmington's North Waterfront Park.                 

This draft master plan was created by city staff after extensive public input. From May-December 2014, the city received approximately 1400 comments from public meetings, presentations, events, community centers, an online survey and social media. 
It was presented to Council on May 2, 2016. Council is expected to formally adopt the plan later this year.

Additional open space is a top priority in the city’s park master plan and was the number one recommendation in the city’s Vision 2020 plan that outlines a plan for downtown development. “The lack of downtown parks and open space has a critical impact on the urban environment. Without inviting recreation opportunities or public gathering places, the reasons for visiting or staying downtown are reduced for both local residents and tourists,” the plan states.

The city will begin looking at ways to fund the improvements shown in the plan. Currently no funding has been secured. In the meantime, the park will continue to be utilized for specific special events.
