Spa owner has relocation plans
The owner of a mini spa whose business in downtown Milton was destroyed in a Sept. 22 fire wants to reopen on property in a rural area near Lewes.
Hillary Brock has filed for a conditional use to operate a spa at 19950 Beaver Dam Road near the Stockley Road intersection. She and her husband, Todd Brock, are building a house and a 4,800-square-foot barn on the property. During the Nov. 12 Sussex County Planning and Zoning Commission meeting, Brock said the spa would be open by appointment only from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday-Saturday. She said no more than 10 customers a day would visit the spa.
Commissioners deferred a vote to a future meeting. Sussex County Council has scheduled a public hearing on the application at 1:30 p.m., Tuesday, Dec. 1.
