Everyone hollers growth growth growth.
Then, when that growth impedes or affects a quaint historical "thing" in town the historians and naturalists start hollering as well.
These trees are too close to a major road and are dying - probably from the excessive carbon monoxide.
Then there's the fountain further down the road.
We unfortunately need to make a decision or two here. The city has obviously grown far more than anticipated by those who donated he fountain and planted those trees.
Please, in the interest of public safety remove those trees and widen Market street in that area. Then remove the fountain and relocate it - possibly to Bellamy Mansion.
I'm aware of the historical significance of structures and their preservation but for both situations these tress and that fountain pose a significant hazard to motorists who are residents of Wilmington and visitors.
Save the fountain by moving it......remove the trees and encourage private planting of majestic oaks. We can grow and at the same time remain "historic".
