Perspectives on the Growth of Wilmington

Wilmington is attracting new residents at a pace not seen since World War II, when thousands of workers flocked to the city to build hundreds of Liberty ships. In the next 20 years, we could see 50,000 to 60,000 more people in the city and 300,000 more in the three-county region. 

We are all feeling the growth pressure where it impacts us the most - on our roads. The rapid growth and sprawling development pattern of the past 30 years in particular are now challenging the capacity of our infrastructure. And, it's getting worse as people move farther out in search of affordability and the hope of escaping traffic congestion.

If our past patterns of growth are failing us, are there better ways? This presentation led by Glenn Harbeck, Director of Planning, Development, and Transportation for the City of Wilmington will provide perspectives on the growth of our city and region, and ways to build a better Wilmington.
