WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

City of Wilmington staff has recommended staying with the original plan to build a nine-hole, par-3 golf course for the Inland Greens project .

The recommendation came during a discussion held after the city council agenda briefing meeting Monday morning.

The plan for the project includes the golf course, walking trail, fitness stations, a playground and picnic shelters.

Wilmington Superintendent of Parks and Recreation Amy Beatty, who led the discussion, said that the $815,962 remaining in the project's budget should be enough to cover the expected costs to complete the work.

The city purchased the Inland Greens golf course in 2011. In January 2015, a $1.2 million project began to improve stormwater drainage and to install a walking trail. That work was completed in January 2016.

Phase two originally was planned for the spring of this year but the city received no bids for the project in March. Several contractors said they were interested in the project but were too busy at the time, said Beatty.

Due to the timing of the growing season, the project was put on hold.
