Through the support of Healthy Communities Delaware, the SWPN, Southbridge Civic
Association, and the Asakura Robinson planning firm is working with community-based
partners and residents to develop a Planning Implementation Action Plan. This plan will
inform actions and performance measures to address community residents’ myriad
concerns, also including the impacts of COVID-19 on the Southbridge community.
Primary and secondary data collection will assess housing needs, food insecurity,
financial security, un/under-employment, and local environmental perceptions to
develop this planning document that guides healthy and equitable redevelopment.
This plan will build off recommendations from both the 2006 South Wilmington
Neighborhood Plan and Wilmington’s 2028 Comprehensive Plan and provide prioritized
action steps for completing them. It will also capture new ideas from Southbridge
residents about community environmental, economic, and health issues, while also
assessing the impact the COVID-19 pandemic and setting a course for recovery.
