Briefly Sussex P&Z defers Kings Creek action The Sussex County Planning and Zoning Commission has de- ferred action on a zoning change and request for a conditional use to allow 16 townhouse units at Kings Creek. The project would be located on two acres near the entrance to the Kings Creek golf course and single family home de- velopment, located near the Re- hoboth Beach Park and Ride. The Planners will again consider the issue when the group meets on Thursday, June 25. At issue is whether or not the density is too great for the area. Supporters said that it fits with an area near a Hol- iday Inn, outlet malls, a park-and- ride lot and the Sports Complex.

Terming the city's selling of the land in the 1980s as "unfortu- nate," Cooper said it was up to this board to rectify the situation, adding that they will settle on Sept. 15, with the $125,000 com- ing out of the city's general fund. (The city agreed to pay $385,000 for the McQuay's land, which has been leased to a group now oper- Opponents worried that it was too dense and too near the complex of single family homes. Jim Fuqua, representing the proposed devel- opers, said the units will be three- story units and said plans call for four clusters of three units each. Fuqua said the site is in a develop- ment zone and complies with the Sussex County land use plan. Rob Witsil, representing the Kings Creek Residential Homeowners, agreed that the land is probably not appropriate for single-family homes. But his clients worry that the site near the entrance would hurt aesthetics and prove too dense for the area. So Witsil and his clients offered a compromise - that the project be approved but be limited to eight units.

Campbell-White wrote back to Calhoun that the CIB wants "to work in a cooperative partnership with all sectors of the agricultural community and we were dis- mayed by the tone of this article." "The Center was developed to ating the liquor store, which must move the operation no later than four years from now.) Prior to the June 12 meeting, Cooper said that the asking price wasn't outlandish, given the fact that property values have in- creased two-and-a-half times since Sugrue purchased it. At $29 per square foot, which is the aver- age price for commercial land in Rehoboth Beach, if that figure is applied to the entire McQuay- Sugrue parcel, which is more than lO,000-square feet, the figures jive, he noted.

Freder- ick and the other members of the Mid-Atlantic Coastal Partnership, a five-state group working to sup- port beach replenishment, will be attending the 1998 National Coastal Summit. Frederick has long called for federal involve- ment in beach replenishment pro- jects and he said the federal gov- ernment's recent tilt back toward providing some funding for such projects is a good step. "The door was theoretically slammed shut and now it's open," Frederick said. The Coastal Summit will be held June 24-26 in Washington D.C.; it is expected to focus atten- tion on the issue of beach replen- ishment. "We want to impress up- on the members of Congress that it is vital for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to remain an active participant in shore protection bring objective information about the Inland Bays to the public," Campbell-White wrote in her June 3 letter. "So that restoration activities can be implemented, educational opportunities can be explored, re- search can be conducted and so that all Delawareans can work to- gether in this clean up effort. It has never been the. position Center to assign blame." So, now the question remains where to go from here. Price said that he hopes the rift has begun to heal.

Gagliano is a part of the Mid-Atlantic Part- nership and a former New Jersey legislator. "Each year, approxi- mately 180 million Americans spend $74 billion on visits to oceans and beaches in the United States." Gagliano and Frederick said it is vital to protect the beaches, argu- ing the economic benefits speak for themselves. In fact, Frederick said that some Dewey Beach visi- tors this season "are shocked" at the eroded beach [plans call for state beach replenishment to begin by the first week in July].
