State park restaurant proposal is insulting

October 11, 2022

I don’t know where to begin. While longtime residents of Sussex County continue to reel under the urbanization this once very rural county has historically enjoyed, we are now further insulted by a proposal to apparently erect a restaurant inside our treasured and protected Cape Henlopen State Park. Yes, what a great idea. Maybe that could just be the start of a very lucrative commercialization of an area of natural beauty, so we effectively render it irretrievably ugly. No, no and heck no ... please.
