Wilmington City Council approves Inland Greens purchase


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Wilmington City Council voted unanimously to move forward with the purchase of the Inland Greens golf course, which will be used as a public park.

It voted to accept $75,000 from affected homeowners associations. The city will purchase the property for $500,000. Council members approved stormwater improvements at Inland Greens, as well.

Council also voted to apply for a $75,000 grant from the North Carolina 2011 Recreational Trails Program. The money would help build the Cross City Trail. When completed the trail will cross the city from Wade Park in south Wilmington to the drawbridge at Wrightsville Beach.

Finally, the council voted 6-1 in favor of a resolution opposing proposed bills in the state legislature that would allow digital billboards to be erected every 1,500 feet on each side of any interstate or highway.
