As part of the development of the Create Wilmington Comprehensive Plan, neighborhood planning area meetings will be held throughout the city to gather input from residents on their desired future for their community. The results of these meetings will serve as the building blocks for the policy recommendations of the Comprehensive Plan. In order to facilitate this community outreach effort, the city has been divided into over 40 distinct neighborhood planning areas (see Neighborhood Planning Areas Map). These neighborhood planning areas have been created based on current development patterns, streets, and natural features. These areas may include several neighborhoods, developments, or subdivisions, and both residential and nonresidential uses. Neighborhood planning area meetings will be held over the next several months at various locations across the city.
Kids are welcome to attend!
A Kids’ Corner will be set up with input exercises geared specifically for our younger citizens.

Log on to Connect Wilmington to submit ideas, review other ideas, comment, vote, take surveys and much more!
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!
Take the Survey!
Did you know that the population of Wilmingtonians age 65 and older is expected to increase by almost 110% in the next 25 years? What are we doing to address the needs of an aging population? What can we do to be better prepared? Take this short survey now!
Meeting in a Box
Do you want to help define the future of Wilmington? Do you want to create the vision for the city’s comprehensive plan? Are you part of a group that wants to participate to create Wilmington?
Meeting in a Box is designed for community groups, neighborhood associations, or friends to gather at a convenient time and location to share their opinions about the future of the city. The Meeting in a Box kit contains everything you need to conduct a meeting!
