Transportation bond to appear on Nov. ballot

At their July 8 meeting, the Wilmington City Council approved a $44 million bond referendum which would allow for $55 million in transportation improvements within the city. The remaining $11 million would come from existing funds. Traffic has consistently been a primary concern for citizens in years of citizen surveys. 

On May 20, Council heard the findings of a Council committee that had been tasked with identifying priorities among the area’s many transportation needs. The long list of needs that would be addressed by this bond includes $35 million for road projects and $20 million for bicycle and pedestrian projects. 

The referendum will appear on the Nov. 4 ballot.
