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.
"This is the community's plan, and we want to shape the future of our community through this public input," long range planner Jennifer Rigby said.
The goals include using the community to decide on issues of importance and trying to best gauge what the community will need to continue to grow over the next 25 years.
