Winter Park residents share ideas

City of Wilmington ages

    Winter Park ages

Winter Park has 15 percent more Gen Y/Millennials than the city as a whole, mainly due to its proximity to UNCW.  

More than 30 people from the Winter Park area attended the City of Wilmington's third neighborhood outreach and input meeting on Nov. 14. Together, residents shared what they love about their neighborhood, what they’d like to change and their ideas for the future of their community. 

Residents liked the area’s parks and bike trails, Winter Park Elementary School and the single-family character of the area. They felt there is a lack of code enforcement in the area, poor property maintenance and too many cars parked in yards. 

Residents would like to see a pedestrian bridge over College Road, a place for college students to congregate other than within the neighborhood and increased apartments along Kerr Avenue to provide options for student housing.

The meetings also include a Kid's Corner so the youngest members of our community can provide their input.

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

The next neighborhood meeting will be held on Thursday, Nov. 21 for the Pine Valley area at 6:30 p.m. at Pine Valley Elementary School, located at 440 John S. Mosby Drive.
