WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

Wilmington officials will provide information and look for input from residents on the city's brewery initiative at a meeting this coming Thursday.

Over the past year, city officials have received inquiries from several craft brewers interested in locating or expanding in Wilmington.

Currently, breweries are not identified as a specific type of business in city code resulting in confusion and delays in permitting.

In response to this confusion, city officials are working to clarify the code and at this meeting, residents will be asked to provide input about possible changes in the code.

The meeting will be held Thursday, May 29 at City Hall at 6:30 p.m.

Residents may also provide feedback via the city's online engagement tool here: http://bit.ly/1puUgK7
