Open Data Challenge 2018 showed that, when given the opportunity, regular citizens can contribute great ideas and valuable feedback when it comes to civic issues.

The City of Wilmington, WILMAPCO and DelDOT are looking for more input from the community (minus the dev aspect for now).

Five upcoming public events this month will tackle the topics of Wilmington’s infrastructure and transportation, and residents are urged to get involved.

Mayor Mike Purzycki announced the events, which include four workshops and an informational open house detailing several neighborhood initiatives, including the South Wilmington Wetlands Park, the 76ers Sports Facility and the Christina River Bridge.

The focus of several of the workshops is transportation infrastructure and redevelopment projects such as the 12th Street Connector.

The events are:

Tuesday, June 19 from 6–8 p.m.

  • Open House at the Elbert-Palmer Elementary School gym (1210 Lobdell St.)

Projects presented include the South Wilmington Wetland Park, Southbridge Streetscape (Phase II), the Christina River Bridge, the South Wilmington Transportation Network (Garasches Lane), Clean Waterways Wilmington, the Philadelphia 76ers Sports Facility and other ongoing neighborhood initiatives.
