npcIn 1981, Wilmington's City Council passed an ordinance establishing Neighborhood Advisory Committees. Their functions were to provide advisory information and suggestions regarding housing, traffic volume and patterns, zoning and land planning to the City and its departments. In 1993, the Neighborhood Advisory Committees were redeveloped as Neighborhood Planning Councils. There were eight Neighborhood Planning Councils created across the City.

The purpose of The Neighborhood Planning Council is:

  • to make the City more responsive to the needs of the neighborhood and the people who live in them.
  • to develop a problem-solving partnership with neighborhood residents, agencies and other levels of government that enable the City's administration to address problems that the community cannot resolve by itself.
  • to develop a comprehensive blue print for neighborhood revitalization.
  • to inform and consult neighborhood residents about City activities and initiatives.

NPC Mission

The mission of the Neighborhood Planning Council is to provide leadership in concert with the City's administration, in initiating a community-wide planning process to address the physical, social and economic needs of the community. Through their leadership, all segments of the community will participate in developing a neighborhood plan to improve their community for themselves, their families and their neighborhoods.
