CAPE , friday, April IS- Apm , I- 15 Sussex soothes town officials over intergovernmental cooperation ByMichaelShort Stickels said Sussex County noted that the towns can always or. Stickels has Said before that should be planned" and he took Sussex County Council poured. a little oil on the water on Friday in an effort to soothe ruffled feath- ers of town officials. County Administrator Bob Stickels called the meeting and in- vited members of the town gov- ernments to attend following what he called a misunderstanding after the most recent Sussex County Association of Towns meeting. Following that meeting, Stick- els said that a newspaper headline indicated there were potential problems between the towns and county on the issue of intergov- ernmental cooperation and annex- ation. Both Stickels and SCAT President and Fenwick Island Mayor Peg Baunchalk said that is not the case. "We thought every- thing was fine until we read the paper the next day," she said. will be supportive of town deci- sions tO annex.

Some towns, like Selbyville, had requested larger districts, but other towns made no comments or requests. The county decided to keep what was already on the books and add develop- ment districts around towns which had no such zones. At the same time, the county annex land around them. That land could then effectively be- come a development district with increased density allowed, etc. Most of the county's towns at- tended Friday's session, which was over in less than an hour. The other key issue has been a decision to establish a one-mile intergovernmental coordination zone around towns. Development plans in that area should be shared with towns in order to give them-a chance to have input on such plans, a decision Rehoboth Beach has supported. Stickels requested that the towns extend a similar courtesy to Sussex County Coun- cil. "In return, we would like to be in your loop," Stickels said.

Stickels' point I was that what both the towns afld county does can impact each[ other. Cooper said he attended because he heard there had been some criticism of Rehoboth Beach. Stickels said he was not trying to be critical. "Maybe the criticism will stop," he told Cooper. '!You are going through the sam growing pains we are." Cooper said that Re- hoboth's .positiOn is "growth i exception with the Delaware De- partment of Transportation's ap- proach to Route 1. He asked what can be done to improve things and Stickels suggested a massive turnout at DelDOT's capital im- provement plan hearings when potential projects are under con- sideration. "Route 1 is our top consideration for council. What we need to do is show up in mass at meetings," Stickels said. Stick- els also suggested another road between Lewes and the Whiskey Beach vicinity, but said that would be controversial. That prompted Cooper to say about Route 1, "I'd love to see it bypassed.
