With the cold weather finally settled in, Wilmington's stages are just starting to heat up with their new theatre seasons, and WHQR is going behind the curtain with the leaders of companies around the region to learn what they have planned.
Wilmington, NC – The New Hanover County Planning Board is scheduled to vote tonight on whether it will adopt a uniform zoning plan for the west side of the Cape Fear River.
Height has been a major concern with the proposed zoning. The City of Wilmington has passed a version with a 20-story height limit. Historic Wilmington Foundation supports a 50-foot height limit. And a draft produced out of planning board workshops calls for a 100-foot height limit for directly across from historic downtown Wilmington.
Wilmington, NC – The state of the city is excellent, according to mayor Bill Saffo.
But that doesn't mean it isn't facing difficult - and expensive - items, items Saffo highlighted in his State of the City speech tonight, ranging from sewer projects past and present to a ten-year plan to eradicate homelessness.
In an interview last week, Saffo said he wanted to be frank, "it's not going to be cheap, and it's not going to be as fast as we all want it to be, but we're moving forward in that direction."
