Does the city plan to landscape the remaining shoulders of Market Street between 21st and 17th streets like they did in front of the National Cemetery?

The city of Wilmington did not make the enhancements along Market Street in front of the National Cemetery.

“The cemetery did that. It is the property owners’ responsibility to maintain the areas in front of their homes to the curb or street,” said Nina Johnston, superintendent of the city’s Parks and Urban Forestry Division.

If a property owner does not want to enhance the area in front of a home or business, “then they need to contact the parks office,” Johnston said.

Plants or shrubs cannot be higher than 30 inches, and trees need to be planted out of the site triangle, Johnston said.

“It is better to contact us and we will be glad to discuss possible landscape designs and maintenance needs,” Johnston said.

For more information, contact the city parks office at (910) 341-7852.

    Kudos to our National Cemetery for doing a job the city should be doing. That whole section of Market is overrun with weeds and trash and in desperate need of enhancement. The city should apply for a grant to improve the appearance of the area and then desiginate that portion of Market Street as a scenic byway like they want to do with Airlie Road. The bad appearance of the shoulders of the road detract from the overall beauty of the trees lining the highway and now the great job done by the National Cemetary makes the rest a big eyesore.
