WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The City of Wilmington wants to hear from its younger residents.

Officials are holding a series of meetings called "Planning on Tap." They'll be held at local bars and restaurants.

Millennials, those born between 1982 and 2000, make up the greatest percentage of Wilmington's population, but they have been the most under-represented at the recent neighborhood meetings to get input for the city's long-term growth plan.
