How much money does the city give to the Cameron Art Museum? Who paid to extend Museum Drive?

Merton Vance

In 2006, the city of Wilmington committed $100,000 each year for four years to the Cameron Art Museum to establish a maintenance endowment.

The Museum Drive extension was paid for by the city as part of project to widen a section of Independence Boulevard, a $6.4 million project financed by transportation bonds approved by voters in 2006. The Museum Drive portion of the project cost the city $343,000. In exchange, the Cameron family gave the city right of way property for another project.

Here’s a link to a story with more details on the road project:
