The Create Wilmington Team has been working hard to bring you a draft of the comprehensive plan, and the first two pieces of the box set are ready for your review and feedback! The Foundations Report is a summary of the public input process and the feedback that was collected throughout the plan development process. The Growth Factors Report is a look at the things that helped Wilmington become what it is today, along with future growth projections, and an analysis of our built environment. Please take a few moments to look through these reports and let us know what you think!

 What is a Comprehensive Plan? (pdf)

Wilmington’s comprehensive plan will describe a vision for how we experience our community – how we get around, where we live, the way buildings and streets look, and where we play. Trying to contemplate all of these ideas at once can be daunting. Join us in one or more of these efforts to get involved and help chart the course!

Got a group?
