WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The Love Grove Community in Wilmington is struggling to get an access road built to give them another way out of their community.

Ron Sparks, a former city council member and an advocate for this community, made a presentation before the council Tuesday night, but no action was taken following it.

"It may be a situation where there will be a loss of life and then people will get excited and say we should have done something," said Sparks.

Sparks says the Wilmington City Council is not making the access road a priority. He says, instead they plan on a voting to buy property to turn it into a park near the Riverwalk.

"Love Grove needs to have another way out because it's a life safety issue. Parks are important, I'm all for parks but this is a life safety issue," said Sparks.
