Wilmington City Council voted against the proposed rezoning to build Section 8 senior living housing in the Pine Valley neighborhood. Though they voted 4-2, city council needed a supermajority of five votes to approve the rezoning because of protest petitions.
Many Pine Valley residents are up in arms over a possible rezoning vote.
The Wilmington Housing Authority wants to build public housing off John Barry Drive and 17th street. Nearby property owners are not happy and they're letting city council know it.
