WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The Wilmington City Council said OK to changing Urban Mixed Use regulations Tuesday night. The new code would be eligible for properties outside of downtown Wilmington.

The regulation would essentially allow taller, larger structures to come to more suburban parts of Wilmington.

The regulation also gives the go-ahead to rezoning the Galleria shopping center that was recently annexed from Wrightsville Beach.

Just what areas are they talking about? urban mixed use ? and are they going to compensate the citizens that purchased property in these residential areas prior to this regulation these properties are forever devalued? when these commercial buildings destroy the property value and increase the crime and noise, chase away what little wildlife we have left, create impervious surface problems and increase flooding. basically destroy our way of life! What then when our investment is ruined all of our hard work is for nothing gone because some jug head with nice hair makes a stupid decision? Where was the public input on this. Is it even constitutional? This near sighted anything for the almighty buck and if you do not live in landfall or a place like it we will run you over with the government big wheel approach has got to change. This is crazy you cannot hope to populate the entire city with millionaires. You are not Carolina beach that is pushing out working people as fast as they can and moving in folks from out of town that do not know any better.
Surely to God they are not that many retirees from the north east that want to live here?

beach guy…I think you have made the most idiotic rant that I have ever read on here. The property being rezoned was already commercial. Nobodies values are going down because of this. The wildlife was gone long before you were here. Is this even constitutional? Probably not…our founding fathers would have probably preferred a park…
