WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — UNCW is getting money from the City of Wilmington to renovate the track.

UNCW is also asking for $500,000 from the county for renovations.

The track was built in 1988 and no major work has been done to it since.

Also during last night’s meeting, council approved a request for reimbursement of up to $3,500 for Mayor Pro-tem Margaret Haynes’s sister city trip to San Pedro, Belize last week. The plan is to use unspent funds remaining in council’s travel budget for this year.
