The City of Wilmington will hold its ninth neighborhood outreach meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Mar. 13 to get input from citizens in the Chestnut Heights-Princess Place 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 will be held for residents of the Chestnut Heights-Princess Place area at 6:30 p.m. in the cafeteria of Snipes Academy, located at 2150 Chestnut Street.
Participants will receive information about the area’s demographic and socioeconomic standings, including pending changes that will impact their neighborhoods.
For example, more than half the population in the Chestnut Heights-Princess Place area is currently 30-45 years old, but the 65+ population will grow by 64 percent in just the next four years.
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. Following the completion of the neighborhoods meeting series, a citywide meeting will be held on Saturday, May 10 at the Northeast Regional Library at 10 a.m. to present the results of the neighborhood meetings and discuss the next steps.
The next neighborhood input meeting will be held for the Audobon-Devon Park area on Thursday, March 20 at 6:30 p.m. in Elebash Hall at St. John’s Church, located at 1219 Forest Hills Drive
