On Oct. 24, the City of Wilmington held its second neighborhood outreach meeting to get input from citizens about what they like and don’t like about their neighborhoods, as well as what they want to keep and what they want to change.
Thursday’s meeting will be held for residents of the Old East Wilmington area at 6:30 p.m. in the Derick Davis Center at Maides Park, located at 1101 Manly Ave.
Input from these meetings will serve as the building block for the city’s long-term plan that, when finalized, will become the policy foundation for decision-making to proactively manage growth and change. There will also be a “Children’s Corner” with activities for younger citizens while their parents participate in the meeting.
At each of 12 planned meetings, area residents will be asked to 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.
