Sussex 2030 had a notice on this weeks ago. Part of our argument for opposing this zoning change could come under Title 9 Counties, Sussex County Chapter 69. Zoning Subchapter II The Quality of Life Act (https://delcode.delaware.gov/title9/c069/sc02/index.html ) This Quality of life appears in #6951. Short Title; Intent and purpose. Paraphrased states: Through the process of comprehensive planning, it is intended that units of county government can preserve, promote and improve the public health, safety, comfort, good order, appearance, convenience, law enforcement and fire prevention and general welfare. Facilitate the adequate and efficient provision of transportation, develop, utilize and protect natural resources within their jurisdictions.
Remember that 70 homes are already approved without need to change zoning on the upper portion of this land off Bennett Avenue. Freeman proposes 23 new homes which require a zoning change.
This strip of land that Freeman Companies wants to cover in housing is threated by polluted runoff into the fragile marshes. The water quality of upper Assawoman Bay is also threatened. Increased density will clog traffic on this roadway.
Please write to Planning and Zoning giving your opposition to this zoning change. We must fight again and hopefully powers that be will agree with us.
