The City of Wilmington will hold a public meeting on Thursday, May 29 at 6:30 p.m. in City Hall to provide information and get citizen input on the city’s brewery initiative. City Hall is located at 102 N. 3rd Street.
Over the past year, the city has received inquiries from several craft brewers interested in locating or expanding in Wilmington. Currently, breweries are not identified as a specific type of business in city code, resulting in confusion and delays in permitting. In response, the city has been working to clarify the code. At this meeting, citizens will be asked to provide input about possible changes to the code.
Citizens can also provide feedback via the city’s online engagement tool at connectwilmington.org. For more information, contact Phil Prete via email or call 342-2779.
