The City of Wilmington will hold its tenth neighborhood outreach meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Mar. 20 to get input from citizens in the Audubon-Devon Park 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 Audubon-Devon Park area at 6:30 p.m. in Elebash Hall at St. John's Church, located at 1219 Forest Hills Drive.
Participants will receive information about the area’s demographic and socioeconomic standings, including pending changes that will impact their neighborhoods.
For example, although more than half of the Audubon-Devon Park area’s population is under the age of 30, the percentage of residents 65 years of age and older is expected to increase by 83 percent by 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.
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.
