At 228 pages, the Wilmington 2028 plan isn’t exactly a quick read, but after many months of development, it’s worth checking out.

If you’ve been following the evolution of the city’s 10-year plan, it’s been a culmination of public forums, focus groups, surveys and interviews. The result — which still needs the approval of City Planning Commission, Wilmington City Council and the Delaware Office of State Planning and Coordination — includes recommendations for the next decade, with a focus on five goal areas:

  • Strong and safe neighborhoods
  • Healthy and thriving communities
  • Robust local economy
  • Connected city and region
  • Sustainable and resilient city

Some of the recommendations include an investment in training and entrepreneurship opportunities; more opportunities for small businesses; support for kitchen incubators, co-working spaces, live-work spaces and light manufacturing spaces; and nurturing a creative environment to attract talent.

It also includes lots of colorful graphics and valuable data about the city.
