WHO WE ARE
We are neighbors working together to keep Rodney Reservoir safe, public and green. We are asking the City of Wilmington to commit to making the Rodney Reservoir a permanent public greenspace and work with the community to create a design and secure the funds to make it a reality.
The Mayor has announced he plans to start demolishing the Rodney Reservoir in January
What residents are asking the City to do before starting demolition:
Test the concrete and piping systems for hazardous substances to protect our health during demolition.
WHY: The community deserves to know what hazardous substances may be released into the air, soil and water by the demo and munching activity. There should be a clear plan to keep us safe.
Complete the design for the new park and commit to building it.
WHY: Starting demolition before completing the community design process wastes resources and leaves the site in limbo. The City has not yet committed or pledged funds to build a park after demo and grading.
We live here! Let’s make sure the project is done safely and creates a park!
