RV park incompatible with community

December 22, 2013

We have a house on Railroad Avenue in Lewes and though it is only a few days before the holidays, one “gift” we don’t want is the Lingo developer’s dream of an RV park at Love Creek.

The whole idea is unnecessary and disruptive to even think about. The developer paid for the traffic study. That same type of thing happened where we live in the Friendship Heights area of Chevy Chase/ Washington D.C. It was a disaster with preferential findings, naturally in favor of the developer. Any traffic study has to be conducted by an independent traffic movement professional.

We do not need another RV site since there are already 4,000 spaces available for RVs in the area. This plan does not dovetail in any way with the county comprehensive plan, not to mention the environmental impact of having 628 RV pads and cabins as part of the site.

We are opposed to this seemingly developer-driven and unnecessary intrusion into the purpose of the living style in Lewes; it simply is incompatible with the community.
