i ,i i iL  . I, 16 FRIDAY, JANUARY 4- MONDAY, JANUARY 7, 2013 NEWS Cape Gazette Developer withdraws plans for Bethany water park Cedar Neck Road not the place for large RVs By lion MacArthur ronm@capegazette.com Developers of a a water park and RV campground along Cedar Neck Road near Ocean View will ask Sussex County of- ficials to withdraw applications needed for the project to pro- ceed. The matter is on Sussex County Council's Tuesday, Jan. 8 agenda. The developer, Castaways Bethany LLC, was seeking the passage of three applications in- cluding two Zoning changes and a conditional use to complete the project that would have con- tained a water park, RV camp- ground and rental cottages on a 38-acre parcel. The Sussex County Planning and Zoning Commission recom- mended denial of the applica- tions. Sussex County Council has the final vote on zoning-change and conditional-use applications. Council had not yet scheduled a vote on the project. The proposed project sparked controversy during two county public hearings. Opponents gen- erated at least four petitions with more than 300 signatures and more than 400 letters and emails from residents in 21 different Communities. Homeowners' as- sociations in the area of Cedar Neck Road hired attorney Mary Schrider-Fox to represent them. Jim Fuqua, attomey for the de- veloper, said the decision to withdraw the applications was based on two main factors: the recommendation for denial posed by. planning and zoning, and concerns about Cedar Neck Road. Fuqua said the developer rec- ognized that opponents' con- cerns about the condition of Cedar Neck Road were legiti- mate. He said oversized RVs could cause problems using a narrow road that is frequented by pedestrians and bicyclists. He said no decision has been made on what to do with the par- cel. "This property is not going to sit vacant forever," Fuqua said. "A large section of it is zoned commercial, so there are a lot of different options." SO YOU are getting a new PUPPY this Christmas!
