CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, April 13-April 19, 2001 - U !i00ii .... Michael Short photo The Marsh Farm is located at the corner of Country Club and Shuttle roads just outside the entrance to Rehoboth Beach. 211-unit housing project propose(l for Marsh Farm just outside Rehoboth By Michael Short The Marsh Farm on the out- skirts of Rehoboth Beach has been proposed for 21 i-unit housing de- velopment. Local residents often fretted that would be the next parcel eyed for development during the debate over the plans of Rehoboth Golf Park. Rehoboth Golf Park plans for 125 housing units were approved March 27. Plans have since been filed for the nearby Marsh Farm located at the intersection.of Country Club Road (Sussex 273) and Shuttle Road. The property has long been used as a small horse farm. The larger of two parcels is located next to Jungle Jim's, often called the Sports Complex. The proposal calls for 211 units on approximately 30 acres of property. The larger parcel com- prises some 20 acres. The smaller tract of approximately l0 acres is now a field on the other side of Sussex 273. The proposed zoning change was introduced by Sussex County Council April 10, the preliminary step in any zoning process. The next step will be a public hearing before the Sussex County Plan- ning and Zoning Commission Thursday, June 14. Plans by Marsh Harbor L.L.C. call for mostly multifamily devel- opment, specifically 180 multi- family units and 31 single-family lots to be developed on the two parcels. The plans have already drawn opposition because of congtion. Delaware's Department of Trans- portation (DelDOT) has recom- mended against approval of the plans, citing traffic backups on Country Club Road. That recommendation is not binding but will be considered by the county before any decision is made. "The intersection of Route I and Country Club Road operates unacceptably today during sum- mer Saturday peak hours," ac- cording to a letter from DelDOT. "'Further, both that intersection and the right turn from Shuttle Road on to Route ! would operate unacceptably in 2005 and the traf- fic from the proposed develop- ment would make them both worse. Rehoboth Beach to hold annual clean up April 30 The City of Rehoboth Beach will hold its annual clean up April 30 through May l I for discarded items other than household trash. Con- struction materials will not be picked up, however. City crews will be- gin on the south side of Rehoboth Avenue, beginning with the Lake Dri- ve area during the week of April 30 through May 4. The north side of Rehoboth Avenue and Schoolvue will be picked Up starting with Hen- Iopen Avenue during the week of May 7- I I. City Manager Greg Fer- rese stresses that residents discarding items during the designated weeks should do so in a safe manner. City employees will not go back into ar- eas where pick up has been completed, so all residents are urged to have their discarded items at the curb during the designated week.
