Council meeting August 6

City Council meeting, 6:30 p.m. at City Hall
Items of interest on the agenda included:
  • A resolution of support endorsing the plan of the UNCW facilitated Regional Branding Initiative was tabled until the August 20 council meeting. The intended outcome is a collaborative effort by the region to have a shared goal of Economic Development activities that are for the greater good of the region.
  • A public hearing on the potential rezoning of seven acres on Surry Street, formerly known as the Gateway Project. The land was rezoned in 2008 to Riverfront Mixed Use, but the new property owner is requesting the parcels be reverted back to their pre-2008 Light Industrial zoning designation. The request was denied by the Planning Commission and appealed to City Council. This item was continued from the May 7 meeting.
  • A public hearing on the potential rezoning of 302 acres of vacant land along South 17th Street to a variety of uses, including multi-family, office and institutional, regional business, and community business uses. The recommended rezoning was passed unanimously by the Wilmington Planning Commission. This item passed on first reading; however, second reading was continued.

Watch the entire meeting.
