It's about time

It'll be different not to see the police station building downtown, but I don't think I'll miss it. It's been a real rat-trap for years. It was built by the railroad in 1945, but was abandoned a decade later when they left Wilmington in the mid-50s, leaving downtown a ghost town. The building was never maintained well and was constantly plaqued with a number of problems. The police department deserted the building as soon as the new station was finished two years ago. And if you want to keep downtown strong, you better hope CFCC stays put. CFCC is the only thing growing in downtown. Take a walk down Front St. and you'll see vacant storefronts on every block. If it wasn't for CFCC and the students and employees who are down there every day, many existing busineses would suffer even more than they are now. As for the north campus, the college just opened a brand new building up there a month ago and has plans for another in a couple of years. Keep up the good work, CFCC!
