WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- New Hanover County is announcing the first phase of its Comprehensive Plan to citizens today. It is focused on crafting policies that will shape new hanover county over the next 25 years.

Citizens also make up a good chunk of the people designing the plans, because they say public input in this process is invaluable.
