Click this link to send a pre-written letter to legislators to let them know we want a plan for the future Rodney Reservoir Park BEFORE demolition! You can also add your own text. It's easy!!  Read on for more details!


  • The City is moving forward with plans to demolish the Rodney Reservoir.

  • The City hasn't formed the Rodney Reservoir Task Force yet even though bond bill funding requires comprehensive planning and community engagement.

  • The City has not made plans or set aside funds to turn the Rodney Reservoir into a permanent public greenspace.


Before starting demolition, we need the City of Wilmington to collaborate with the community to create a design for the future Rodney Reservoir public greenspace and secure the funding to make it a reality. 


Let the City and elected officials know that you oppose any demolition before a community-driven plan is in place with funding. Ask them to launch a Rodney Reservoir Working Group right away so that the city and residents can work together on creating a design for the future greenspace and obtaining the funding to make it a reality.
