Carolina Place-Ardmore neighborhood mtg

City of Wilmington ages

    Carolina Place-Ardmore ages


About 40 residents of the Carolina Place-Ardmore area came out to the neighborhood planning meeting at New Hanover High School on Feb. 20. Residents shared what they love about their neighborhoods, what they’d like to change, and their big ideas for the future of the area. Participants also received information about the area’s demographic and socioeconomic standings, including pending changes that will impact their neighborhoods.

Topping the “Keep It” list were the charm and character of the area, the trees and greenery, and the diversity of the community. Among the changes they would like to see are the addition of traffic calming measures, additional street lights, and a new grocery store. Their big dreams include a cleaner Burnt Mill Creek with additional programming at the park, such as a baseball diamond and performing arts facility, additional affordable housing units, and the removal of the ABC store.

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.
