Cape G ette NII WS " FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 18- MONDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2011 9 CVS plan Continued from page 3 promised." She said the number of residents who have signed a petition in favor of the applica- tions is not a true indication of how most residents feel. She said a vote of all residents would be a better indication. Anthony Pasek, who lives across the street from the parcel, said he relied on the condition - a deed restriction - to remain as written. "Nothing was ever said after a 10-year period they could come back with an amendment," he said. He reminded council the developers had offered to place the deed restriction on the par- cel. They also questioned the need for another pharmacy when two are already within the immediate area. John Gilbert, president of The Villages of Five Points-Property Owners Association, said the as- sociation supports the applica- tions. "The changes made to the plans are a win-win for all of us," he said. A letter of support from the Village Center Association, man- agers of the Food Lion shopping center, and a petition with more than 100 signatures in support of the applications have been placed in the public file. Hudson said concerns were expressed about the future of Cape Pharmacy within the shop- ping center. "They have a niche market as the only compounding pharmacy in the county," Hud- son said. "They are not the same type of business as CVS." He said while some say CVS is a competitor, the landlord is sup- porting the applications. "This shows it's not the case," Hudson said. The developer held six meet- ings with residents to discuss the plans. "With the input of the res- idents we created a much better site plan," Hudson said. The previous plan, which in- cluded a proposed rezoning from AR-1, agricultural-residen- tial, to B-l, neighborhood busi- ness district, was withdrawn a year ago before council had a chance to vote on it. Kevin McBride defended the developer, saying the addition of the pharmacy would lead to pos- itive changes in the community. "When other developers have walked away, the Hudsons are trying to live up to their commit- ments," he said. "The Hudsons conduct business with honesty and integrity and have gone aboveand beyond what they promised." He Said they have provided funding for additional landscap- ing and more than 800 additional trees which have enhanced resi-' dents' property values. Hudson attended the Decem- ber Lewes library board of trustees meeting to present the plan and provide architect's ren- derings of how the library could Two new members for county assessment board Sussex County Council unanimously voted Feb. 8, to approve a pair of appointments to its assessment appeals board. Julie Rigby of Seaford in District 1 and Tom O'Hagan of Lewes in District 3 will serve five-year terms on the board, which meets the first 15 working days in March to hear property tax, and sewer and water assessment appeals.

Garru 6, CheruI "lilton, proprietors be built on the 2.5-acre parcel. "We showed them a 48,000- square-foot facility could be built there even though they are look- ing for a 30,000-square'-foot building," Hudson said. He said parking is adequate - and overflow parking is available - for both facilities. D.]. Hughes, a traffic consult- ant, said several options - includ- ing a roundabout and traffic sig- nal - were considered at the in- tersection providing access to the proposed CVS and the Food Lion shopping center. What was finally agreed to was a widening of the median, new crosswalks, larger stop signs and better directional striping. "We want to call more attention to the intersection," he said. Ken Christenbury, an engineer with Axiom Engineering work- ing for the developer, said the es- timated sewer capacity of 14 equivalent dwelling units (EDUs) for the pharmacy and proposed library would not ex- ceed the county's 16 EDUs desig- nated for the parcel. Opponents said if the applica- tions are approved, the pharma- cy should not be permitted to operate 24 hours a day.
