City posts signs showing effects of proposed street and sidewalk bond
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — In a little over a month, Wilmington residents will decide if a $44 million street and sidewalk bond aimed to improve walkways and roadways will pass. City officials have put up signs around the Port City to help demonstrate some of the projects impacted by the bond proposal.
The project, which costs at total of $55 million, will impact several areas around the city, including downtown. Large signs have been placed on the sidewalks in the area to show a mockup of the improvements to that specific area.
If the bond is approved, officials said there could be impacts for citizens’ property taxes by two cents per $100. That means if your home is worth $200,000, your property taxes would go up $40 a year.
The final citizen information meeting on the bond is scheduled for Thursday night at City Hall.
