Tom Ford of Land Design, the engineering firm for the project, said the design of the develop- ment allows for a nice view from themain road, while keeping most of the units in the back portion of the property. The property has 16.3 acres of woods and 4.6 acres of wetlands, which the development will not disturb, said Ford.

"This is part of the James Branch preserve area," said Butler. "[The developers] should consider moving lots out of the buffer." Ford said if the lots were moved to the front of the property more houses-would be visible from the road, reducing the development's aesthetic appeal.

Broughton cautioned that resi- dents should be addressed to learn if there were issues resulting in vehicles being untended on in- town properties. She said some might not be able to afford dispos- al of a derelict vehicle. Youth needs, recreation In discussing youth issues, most agreed there is a need for more organized activities in Milton. Prettyman also said parents are the first to be responsible for their children. He said schools are open for activities, but parents and other adults must be willing to chaperone sports, exercise or other activities. Broughton recommended look- ing at youth programs in other communities, such as programs DNREC adopts new storm water regulations Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control Secretary John A.

"Gills Neck is going to be expe- riencing a lot of growth with the number of units coming in they needed help with the roads," said Townsend, who will flatten a nar- row curve at the western corner of the road, where it meets the devel- opment. Townsend will also pro- vide hydrants, to meet require- ments of the state Fire Marshal's Office, which requires hydrants 1,000 feet apart down the length of Gills Neck from Kings Highway.
