The City of Wilmington will hold its seventh neighborhood outreach meeting on Thursday, Feb. 20 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.
The meeting will be held for residents of the Carolina Place/Ardmore area at 6:30 p.m. in the cafeteria of New Hanover High School, located at 1307 Market St.
Participants will receive information about the area’s demographic and socioeconomic standings, including pending changes that will impact their neighborhoods. For example, the population change in this area is expected to remain relatively level, increasing less than 4 percent by 2017 because the area is built-out. This is one of the oldest areas of the city, with most of its growth occurring prior to 1944.
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, Mar. 6 at 6:30 p.m. in the cafeteria of Parsley Elementary School, located at 3518 Masonboro Loop Rd.
