UPDATE: Interested citizens will have a second chance to review results of the 12 neighborhood meetings. The meeting will be held Tuesday, May 27 from 1:00-3:00 p.m. and the public is invited to drop in anytime between those hours to see meeting results and learn about the next steps.
More than 600 citizens attended neighborhood meetings the city held over the past six months to gather citizen input that will be used to develop a long-term growth plan for Wilmington. The plan will help deal with population growth and coming demographic changes that will change the face of the city.
The top priority of citizens who attended the meetings was more crosswalks, sidewalks, bike lanes and bike paths. Click here to see the top 20 priorities.
Citizens who couldn't attend the meetings but want to provide input can share their thoughts/ideas on the city’s citizen engagement website, connectwilmington.org.
Summaries of all the neighborhood meetings can be found here.
Those residents who dropped in also got a preview of the next steps in the comprehensive planning process called "Future Visions." Get more information on this next step here.
