Invest in Place Community Survey Results

Aging in Place Survey

In 2000, there were 11,637 Wilmingtonians aged 65 or older. In 2010, there were 14,879, an increase of 28%. This number is expected to grow, which raises concerns about healthcare, mobility, adequate housing, and whether seniors can have a high quality of life in Wilmington. A survey was conducted to determine what the community thinks about Wilmington’s ability and readiness to meet the needs of our older citizens.

Man on the Street

A series of “man on the street” surveys were conducted over the summer at various locations. These questions asked participants what they liked best and least about Wilmington and what was on their “wish list” for Wilmington. The results of these surveys can be found below.

Citywide Meetings

The planning process kicked off on May 14th, 2013, with a city-wide input meeting. Participants were asked to brainstorm both their desired future and their unwanted future for the city. Once ideas were recorded, participants were given the opportunity to vote for their top six “desired future” elements and their top four “unwanted future” elements. Results from that meeting can be found below.
