RV park will destroy peaceful community

May 2, 2013

My family and I moved in November 2012 to a new home in The Retreat at Love Creek community in Lewes. We moved from a beautiful community outside of Raleigh, N.C. to what we believe to be an equally beautiful and peaceful community at Love Creek. The operative word is "peaceful." Much to our surprise we discovered in January 2013 that a major RV development with 628 units was proposed as our new neighbor.

In my opinion, the major negative to this proposed RV development is the lack of individual ownership by those using this RV site. The Retreat at Love Creek community is a beautiful and well ordered community primarily because the homeowners take great pride in their homes and property.

It is clear to me that this proposed RV development will do nothing to enhance the neighborhood, but rather it will decrease the surrounding property values, add traffic and noise and increase the pollution of Love Creek and the surrounding environment.

Please support the taxpaying citizens of Lewes who will be burdened by this proposed RV City and help stop this project. If the land is to be developed, it should be with single family homes in a community that takes pride in its appearance, provides tax revenues and keeps the surrounding areas pollution free.
