The City of Wilmington will hold a public meeting from 6-8 p.m. on June 25 to discuss a drainage improvement project planned for the Clear Run area. The meeting will be held at College Park Elementary School, located at 5001 Oriole Drive.
This is the first of a two-phase, multi-year project that will eventually address flooding on New Centre Drive, which has long been a problem when it rains.
The city is seeking input on flooding and erosion concerns of private property owners in the area who will be impacted in Phase I. The $9.6 million project will be one of the largest drainage/flooding improvement projects the city has ever done. City of Wilmington stormwater staff will be on hand to provide information, listen to input and answer questions.
