The Sussex County Planning and Zoning Commission voted Aug. 22 to recommend approval of a change of zone and a conditional use for a 628-lot RV park and campground on Cedar Grove Road near Lewes.
Before the commission meeting began, scores of residents rallied to oppose the park, later filling the meeting room to capacity. The commissioners voted 4-1 to recommend that Sussex County Council approve the applications of Jack Lingo Asset Management, which plans to build Love Creek RV Resort and Campground on a 162-acre parcel.
Voting against the application was Commissioner Rodney Smith, who said the location was not appropriate for the planned park.
Sussex County Council will put the matter on a future agenda for a final vote.
Organizers of the opposition said they will not give up and will continue their effort to block the proposed park.
