Of course they need to evaluate the opportunity and of course they want to do it in a thorough and professional manner. That is why we elected them to positions of leadership as opposed to many without the vision, courage and leadership skills to make difficult decisions that can provide for a more prosperous future for Wilmington.
There have been several examples of other cities that have made the investments necessary to attract and develop downtown projects similar to the vision being proposed for Wilmington and have have experienced stunning success in creating long-term benefits for their citizens. We can learn much from these examples and it would be short-sighted and foolish for council to not evaluate an investment with such potential for the community.
Thank you Mayor and council members for you thoughtful and prudent actions on our behalf.
