Developing a Plan for Our City and Communities

The City of Wilmington is developing a new citywide comprehensive plan that will guide growth and development across the city for the next decade. The plan is called Wilmington 2028 and is being managed by City Planning Director Herb Inden and his departmental team.

“Much is being done at both the government and neighborhood and grassroots levels to improve the quality of life here in Wilmington,” said Wilmington Mayor Mike Purzycki. “This comp plan process affords us the opportunity to address the challenges our city faces today as well as develop a new vision for tomorrow. This will be a community-driven effort which I would like to see reflect the hopes and priorities of our citizens. This plan will guide future development, and shape where and why public and private investment dollars are spent to make Wilmington a stronger and more prosperous city over the next decade.”
