BELVILLE — The Town of Belville is asking for the public’s input in how its riverwalk and downtown should get developed.

Town consultants are specifically eyeing areas north of the existing Brunswick Riverwalk Park, where the riverwalk could be extended and a mixed-use development could be built.

This week town officials will host two outdoor public input sessions to garner responses from the community regarding the town’s Vision 2030 plan. The first session will be held Wednesday, Apr. 14, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Brunswick Riverwalk Park. Officials will host a second meeting Thursday, Apr. 15, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Main Street, at the future downtown development area.

“This is a great opportunity for the residents and visitors of the Town of Belville to describe how they would like to see the Brunswick River developed,” Vision 2030 project consultant Adrienne Harrington said in a press release.

The downtown project could include an extended riverwalk, outdoor amphitheater, marina, restaurants with riverfront seating, shopping, a community center, and more, Harrington said.

“We look forward to hearing the preferences of the community members and will incorporate those preferences into the Vision 2030 Plan for the Brunswick River development,” she said.

The public can also participate by weighing in online by answering a 19-question survey.
