Movie Shows Future of Wilmington

WILMINGTON -- When Wilmington leaders want to show residents their idea of the city's future, they're hoping the movie is better than the book.

Wilmington's development services office has produced a short movie that takes a look at the city's planning efforts. It's the video version of the future land use plan.

City employees hope the video communicates their ideas more easily to residents and developers who otherwise would have to leaf through the city's comprehensive paper plan.

The movie is currently airing on the Time Warner Government Channel, and it's available on a link through the city's website at
