WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Two local nonprofit groups are asking the city for $60,000 to help start a new marketing campaign aimed to bring people downtown.
Wilmington Downtown Inc., in conjunction with the Downtown Business Alliance, has formed a Downtown Marketing Task Force and has come up with a new slogan called “Bring It! Downtown.”
The group is asking for $60,000 from the City of Wilmington’s parking enterprise fund that would be used over 12 months. The group plans on using the money on billboards, social media marketing, and $30,000 on radio advertising.
City Council will vote on the issue at Tuesday night’s meeting.
