Urban Renewal Plans

The Planning Department has developed Urban Renewal Plans for fourteen specific areas in or around downtown Wilmington. The Urban Renewal plans have specific land use goals designed to “renew” these key locations. All major development initiatives in the Urban Renewal areas are reviewed against the stated land use goals to ensure that they are appropriate and compatible with the long-range objectives for the area. Urban Renewal reviews are conducted by the Planning Department and are initiated through permit application to with the Department of Licenses and Inspections.
