Don't rezone land for proposed RV park

By J. Todd Miller | Feb 08, 2013

Those of us who live on or drive regularly on Cedar Grove Road and Robinsonville Road, Ward Road or Mulberry Knoll Road must have noticed the abundance of those bright yellow Notice of Public Hearing signs posted by Sussex County Planning and Zoning to advise us of the proposed zoning change from the current GR (General Residential) zoning to AR-1 which would allow the Lingo/Townsend developers to proceed with their plans for construction of a 600-unit camp resort on 162 acres, which is not permitted under current zoning.

None of the roads posted with these notices have shoulders, so I believe that it's probably illegal to stop in order just to read the Notice of Public Hearing.  Just another of the many reasons not to approve this rezoning.

Lingo/Townsend families have made millions selling/developing Sussex. Bestow the debated parcel to the citizens of the county that has made them extremely wealthy as a nature preserve. Take the gift tax benefit and leave a legacy for all of us to be proud of.

I used to live at the end of Mulberry Road. I know and cherish the special ecosystem that exists. It is a rare biological community of interactive organisms and their physical environment. Development along Love Creek, and the Bay should not be taken lightly. It is our responsibility to preserve the delicate balance where tide meets stream for our children into the future.
