The City of Wilmington will hold its sixth neighborhood outreach meeting on Thursday, Jan. 23 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 Rogersville/Bradley Creek area at 6:30 p.m. in the parish hall of St. Andrews On-the-Sound, located at 101 Airlie Rd.
Participants will hear demographic and socioeconomic information, including pending changes that will impact their neighborhoods. For example, between 2000-2017, the population in this area is only expected to increase by 8.8 percent, while most of the city will grow at a much faster pace.
The city is holding 12 neighborhood planning meetings across the city to get citizen input for a long-term plan for growth. The input will be used to develop the plan that will help deal with coming social and demographic changes that will change the face of Wilmington.
The next neighborhood input meeting will be held for the Masonboro area on Thursday, Feb. 13 at 6:30 p.m. in the cafeteria of Parsley Elementary School, located at 3518 Masonboro Loop Rd.
