WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) – Late last night, Wilmington City Council voted to approve spending $2 million to buy a piece of property in downtown Wilmington.

There’s no word yet on what the city wants to put there, but city leaders say they hope to improve the appearance of N. 3rd Street.

The city will now own two of six parcels within the boundaries of 3rd, 2nd, Front and Brunswick Streets.
