More money going to Wilmington youth and convict programs

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Wilmington City Council took steps Tuesday night to find long-term solutions to crime and gang violence.

Councilors agreed to collaborate with the non-profit, Community Enrichment Initiatives, to provide additional after-school programming for at-risk youth at the MLK Community Center.

They also approved using $50,000 from its savings account to fund the LINC organization.

“So those are things that this will kind of help us build capacity so that we can increase our program income so that we won’t have to come to the city that we are thankful for funds when we get in the red,” said Frankie Roberts, the LINC executive director.

LINC helps men and women who have been in prison transition from a life of crime by finding them shelter, clothes, and jobs.

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Wilmington City Council also heard an update on the best way to develop the site where the Water Street parking deck is located.

The UNC School of Government’s Development Finance Initiative’s preliminary findings reveal the area is not large enough for the type of Public Park people want.

Instead, the group says the site should be developed for a mix of uses, emphasizing river views and parking.
