Sword of Damocles dangling over heads

December 23, 2013

These last days preceding the holidays are a busy time. However, our community and the other communities in our area remain very concerned since the Sussex County Planning and Zoning Commission approved the RV campground at Love Creek application.


It is obvious the commission did not consider but, instead, dismissed all public testimony regarding concerns and opposition to the campground. Instead the commission based its vote on a flawed traffic study paid for by the developer. Did they consider environmental consequences of its approval?


Does the proposed application conform with the current Sussex County Comprehensive Plan? The future enjoyment of our homes and communities are now in the hands of Sussex County Council. We are relying on each member of county council to remove “the sword of Damocles hanging over our heads.”

Merry Christmas and Best Wishes for 2014.
