City holds meeting planning for future growth
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The city of Wilmington held a meeting to provide information and seek input on developing a long range plan for the city’s growth and development.
Questions like where will we live and how to best manage things like education over the next 25 years.
Planners project a population increase of about 50 percent with limited room to grow.
“The biggest take away is that we are running out land for development,” said City Urban Designer Allen Davis. “We have to think more creatively about retro fitting our corridors and doing some infill development, because 3700 acres of land is not that much left.”
This was one input meeting, there will be more. You can learn more about the long term plan, and offer your input at createwilmington.com.
