The city is holding a new series of seven public input meetings called "Planning on Tap" March 18-20 focused on engaging Wilmington's younger residents in the Create Wilmington process. Each of the meetings will have a specific theme.
Although the meetings are targeting those 40 and younger, they are open to anyone. Meetings will be held in area restaurants and bars to provide a relaxed atmosphere for people to come together and talk about their community. The ideas shared and discussed in these meetings will become a part of the comprehensive plan for Wilmington’s future and growth.
As of the 2010 Census, Millienials (those born between 1982 and 2000) make up the greatest percentage of Wilmington’s population (29%), yet this group is often underrepresented at many of the other public input meetings for the city's Comprehensive Plan. This series joins other meeting series focused on getting input from specific groups, such as the neighborhood area meetings and breakfast meetings, which target area business leaders.
