From Delaware Public Media:
Wilmington begins work on comprehensive plan
Visitors to the City of Wilmington’s website will learn that the last comprehensive plan prepared by the city government was completed in 2003.
No matter that the 2003 document is posted online, Leonard Sophrin, the city’s current planning director, disagrees.
“The last comprehensive plan in the city was done in the 1960s, when we tore down our neighborhoods, built Interstate 95 and lost 81 square blocks of beautiful buildings in 10 years,” Sophrin says, leaving little doubt that he’s hardly enamored with how Wilmington has evolved in the past half-century.
