First neighborhood meeting

City of Wilmington ages

    Sunset Park/Woodlawn ages


More than 40 people from the Sunset Park/Woodlawn area attended the City of Wilmington's first neighborhood outreach and input meeting on Oct. 17. Together, residents shared what they love about their neighborhood, what they’d like to change and their ideas for the future of their community. 

While residents liked the many recreational opportunities, quiet neighborhoods and beautiful trees in their community, they counted a lack of enforcement, cut-through traffic and lack of pedestrian amenities as things they would like to change. Their vision of the Sunset Park/Woodlawn area included redevelopment opportunities, wide sidewalks along Carolina Beach Road and a pedestrian bridge over Carolina Beach Road. 

The next neighborhood meeting will be held on Thursday, Oct. 24 for the Old East Wilmington area at 6:30 p.m. in the Derick Davis Center at Maides Park, located at 1101 Manly Avenue.

At each of the 12 meetings, residents will provide input through interactive exercises and will also hear in-depth information about how land is used in their neighborhoods and what types of buildings are included, as well as a look at geographic and socioeconomic characteristics. 

There will be two meetings each month through April 2014 (except December), followed by a city-wide meeting.
