Don't change zoning for RV park

February 21, 2013

The following letter was sent to the members of Sussex County Council, with a copy submitted to the Cape Gazette for publication.

We urge your careful consideration when deliberating the change of zoning for RV City. Please consider the importance of keeping this land as it is presently zoned for the good of Delaware, the people and the environment.

The importance and value of preserving farmland and open spaces cannot be over emphasized. We need farmers to feed the people. Without farms, how can we feed the people who follow us? Once the farms and open spaces are gone, it will be too late to correct the damage done if the zone is changed.

We urge your consideration of this very important issue.

Joseph A. and Mary B. Rolio
