RV park at Love Creek: Commercial editorial?

April 5, 2013

Since when do commercial advertisements appear as newspaper editorials?


There were many statements in the Cape Gazette’s March 8 editorial that appear to be right out of the developers’ original published proposal.


As local residents, we believe that developers should not be granted development rights for a venture just based on their legacy of building quality projects. I question whether this project is appropriate for this area and whether its overwhelming issues outweigh any perceived tourism benefit beyond the real benefit to the wallets of the developers.


After reading articles in the Cape Gazette that are in opposition to the proposed RV project by Townsend and Lingo on Love Creek, personally I cannot see the public benefit of such a project in this area.


I have attended and witnessed the presentations of the opposition which were impressive in the facts and concerns that were presented. In just a short time (since late December), momentum has been building in opposition as evidenced by over 800 signatures and nearly 200 people attending the council meeting who were against the development. These public citizens do not perceive a benefit to them.


These previous articles and presentations cannot be overload or ignored; these are the facts. Until these noted concerns can be corrected by either state or county involvement, we must remain in opposition to this type of undertaking. This purposed project is out of context with the entire Eastern Sussex County community. It is out of character with the entire surrounding area. It will clearly add traffic congestion and cause safety problems as well as create a financial drain on our county's budget.


Certainly, there must be other areas in Eastern Sussex County that would be more applicable to this type of project. The RV park does not fit in the greater Lewes area and on Love Creek.


P.G. and S.A. Fair
