The City of Wilmington (NC) held a public meeting Wednesday morning to share plans for a new fire station as well as two additional parks in the neighborhood, reports wwaytv3.com.
The construction of Station 6—which will have three bays and an exterior designed to blend with the existing Riverlights structures—is scheduled for Spring 2022 with an overall budget of $5.7 million coming from the FY 22 Capital Improvement Fund, the report says.
It will serve the Riverlights community, the Echo Farms community, and a portion of Independence Boulevard. The two parks are set to be built in the neighborhood, too, with one adjacent to Station 6.
