The City of Wilmington will hold its eighth neighborhood outreach meeting on Thursday, Mar. 6 to get input from citizens in the Masonboro area 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. This meeting was originally scheduled for Feb. 13 but had to be rescheduled.
This meeting will be held for residents of the Masonboro area at 6:30 p.m. in the cafeteria of Parsley Elementary School, located at 3518 Masonboro Loop Rd.
Participants will receive information about the Masonboro area’s demographic and socioeconomic standings, including pending changes that will impact their neighborhoods. For example, by 2017, the population in the Masonboro area is expected to increase 29 percent, and the number of citizens ages 65 and older is expected to go up 41 percent through 2017.
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 Chestnut Heights-Princess Place area on Thursday, March 13 at 6:30 p.m. in the cafeteria of Snipes Academy, located at 2150 Chestnut Street
