Officials with the City of Wilmington are seeking feedback on its long-range growth plan and how residents want to see the city grow in the next 25 years.

The city recently released the next phase of its comprehensive plan, which will help manage the city’s growth over the next 25 years in terms of development and city building, transportation, housing, parks and recreation, open space, economic development, environmental and natural resources, arts and culture, community facilities and services, urban designing and planning, downtown Wilmington and historic preservation.

There will be two drop-in style meetings this week to provide the public with the opportunity to review the draft document, ask questions and provide additional input, according to city spokesman Dylan Lee. Meetings will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday at Events on Front, 130 N. Front St., and 3-6 p.m. Wednesday at the Northeast Regional Library, 1241 Military Cutoff Road.
