County council asks DelDOT to consider north-south route By Michael Short similar to the Route l bypass built be difficult [for traffic] to get up The Sussex County Council has around Dover and points north, and down in any kind of timely called on Delaware's Department of Transportation (DelDOT) to begin planning for a possible lim- ited access north-south route through Sussex County. Council approved a resolution on April 18 urging the state to be- gin planning for a potential road that could take decades to build. Such a route would probably be but it is expected to have an enor- mous cost with estimates reaching as high as $400 million. Delaware's General Assembly is poised to follow suit since Sen- ator George Bunting, D-Bethany Beach, has said that he plans to in- troduce a resolution calling for exactly the same thing. "As time goes on, it's going to fashion," Bunting said. He argued that such a road is needed for traf- fic safety and that it is vital to plan for the future. There is no set route or location for such a route because the idea is so preliminary. While expensive, Bunting argued that a roadway won't be any less expensive in the future. Continued on page 17 Tree dispute may nix Long Neck By Michael Short A dispute over whether or not a developer should have cut down trees on his property could poten- tially sink plans for a mini-storage and small shopping center on Long Neck Road. Sussex County granted ap- proval for Central Storage at Long Neck and the Compass Rose Plaza to be located on just over five acres of land on Long Neck Road adjoining Woodlyn Estates. The mini-storage facility with a very small shopping area was ap- proved with little fanfare. Neigh- bors in Woodlyn Estates said they had withdrawn their opposition to the project when the developer said he would maintain a 50-tbot buffer next to their development. After being told the trees would stay, they withdrew their opposi- tion. Woodlyn Estates Homeown- ers Association President Arlene Soukey said the developer then stripped every leaf and twig from the site, leaving no buffer at all. That's a contention that project developers disagree with. Attor- ney John W. Paradee said that his clients had agreed to fenc'e the site, to maintain a 50-foot buffer and to plant additional white pines. In a letter on April 6, he said that all three conditions have been or will be met. "My client is more than willing to do whatever is necessary, within reason and within the parameters of the three commitments [those three condi- tions] set forth in my July 8 letter to Ms. Soukey, in order to assuage the concerns of the neighboring property owners." The dispute prompted County Councilman Vance Phillips to have the issue placed on the coun- ty council agenda recently for dis- cussion. But Phillips was told the proper place to consider the site mini-storage OK plan and whether it Should be re- voked is the Sussex County Plan- ning and Zoning Commission. The commission will consider the issue on Thursday, April 27. Soukey said that without a buffer, wind and noise are large problems for residents. "It is like a wind tunnel now. When you say you are going to do something, we fig- ure you should do it," she said. She said that Woodlyn Estates is not interested in getting a site plan revoked. She said they only want what was promised to them originally, a buffer for iheir homes. The dispute also prompted re- cent discussion by Sussex County Council on whether or not people presenting plans for development should give their testimony under oath. That issue is still being con- sidered by the county's attorney. EXAMPLES OF MEDICARE FRAUD AND ABUSE Claims for services that are not medically necessary. Billing Medicare for x-rays never taken.
