County urged to vote down proposed RV City

July 5, 2013

As a 13-year resident and home owner in Briarwood Estates on Route 24, it is my opinion that the proposed RV City in Love Creek will hurt Sussex County financially as well as the residents in the area, the business people in the county and the visiting tourists alike.

The total inadequacy of the secondary and tertiary roads that must accommodate the RV traffic is already stressed during the summer months by vacationers.  It seems obvious to me and must be realized by the Delaware Department of Transportation that the only benefactor in this endeavor will be the Lingo organization.  The facts that were raised about the project during the Sussex County meetings last February are irrefutable and in some cases in violation of existing county law.

Even with proper infrastructure planning, the cost to the state and local government will ultimately filter down to the taxpayer.  Such a negative impact on our county and its residents is not for the “greater good.”

Thanks to the Cape Gazette’s efforts to keep locals informed about this issue and hopefully Sussex County Council will soon vote to reject the Lingo RV City Project ASAP.
