WDI Introduces: The Jane Jacobs Walk: Impact of Urban Renewal on Downtown Wilmington.
Wilmington Downtown, Inc "WDI" is leading a special event Saturday, June 22nd at 2:00. The tour will begin adjacent to WDI's office (221 N Front Street), in Bijou Park. Officially dubbed a Jane Jacobs Walk, the event is inspired by one of the world's most recognized thought leaders on city planning and city building.
The mission of Jane Jacobs Walks is to assist people as they walk, observe, and connect with their community, their environment and one another, and to celebrate the life and legacy of Jane Jacobs. WDI's event will feature a unique collaboration between WDI CEO John Hinnant, and retired New Hanover County Librarian Beverly Tetterton, a local historian. While walking and talking about the urban renewal that has taken place, photos will be on display to showcase the impacts of urban renewal on Wilmington's historic downtown.
