The CFEDC will host representatives from the Wilmington Metropolitan Planning Organization (WMPO) and the City of Wilmington to discuss the Wilmington/New Hanover County Comprehensive Greenway Plan and the City of Wilmington Collector Street Plan, June 26, 6:30 p.m., in the WHQR Gallery at 254 N. Front Street, Suite 300.
Amy Beatty, the city’s superintendent for Recreation and Downtown Services and Mike Kozlosky, WMPO executive director, will present information on the plans. Discussion will follow.
“The Greenway Plan is an exciting initiative that has the potential to both improve the transportation options in the region and encourage a healthy population through provision of a safe and attractive greenway network having form and function,” says CFEDC Chair Mark King.
With the comment period for the Wilmington/New Hanover County Comprehensive Greenway Plan closing June 30, the CFEDC event offers an opportunity for the public to learn more about the plan and provide commentary on the http://www.wilmingtongreenway.com/ website.
“In terms of the City of Wilmington Collector Street Plan, we are hopeful that the June 26 event can bring some much needed clarity and context to this initiative which, whether for or against, has certainly inspired an intense response among community residents,” says Ian Oeshger, CFEDC vice chair.
The event will begin at 6 p.m. with refreshments and conversation, followed by the presentation at 6:30 p.m. This free event is open to the public.
