Seabright Continued from page 1 Gordon Berl, one of three Seabright partners, said the pro- ject would be attractive and would be nicely landscaped and would include open space. But critics said road capacity, density and school capacity were some of the Firemen reasons to oppose the project. Despite the petition, the project was approved. That prompted Bartley, who said he filed the suit alone, to file his suit. The Citizens Coalition, which will discuss the suit when the group meets on Sunday night, al- ready plans to throw its support behind the effort. Mike Tyler, Cit- izens Coalition President, said that the group is supportive, although it doesn't expect to join the law- suit. "We have been very support- ive...We think there is a good rca- )C(II .3 ",gd.*.O - ?

In fact, the newsletter from the Citizens Coaliton says that steps are being taken to appeal both the Seabright Village and Mears deci- sions. Both are on the agenda to be discussed at the meeting of the Coalition on Sunday, Sept. 29 at 7 p.m. at the Henlopen Grange. W. Leroy Mears had requested and been granted approval for a zoning change to high density to build 69 units on the west side of Road 274, opposite Rehoboth Shores Estates and Breezewood. The 10.9 acres of land were re- zoned to allow triplexes and du- plexes. The property is located about one third of a mile behind Route 1. The September newsletter from the Coalition said "a group of citi- zens is taking steps to appeal the County Council decisions on these properties. Legal costs of such actions could be consider- able, but the plaintiffs believe that their efforts are worth the fees. Retired lawyer Bill Green who won appeals over County Council land use violations in the Bethany area, has agreed to assist with these appeals." Green could not be reached by telephone before deadline to dis- cuss any legal action. The September newsletter also suggests that anyone who wants to help with legal costs may send contributions to John Nevros. Nevros has fulfilled a similar role in a class action suit against the West Rehoboth Sewer District. Nevros was also not available by telephone before deadline. Continued from page 10 ciation is to prevent premature death. To do that, we need the input of the fire service in order to hire the best people for the offices of para- medics and emergency services." Sylvester said his department will have to hire someone to serve as the representative to the fire prevention commission, and he hopes that will be accomplished by the first of the year. After the recent dismissal of the state paramedics director, Sylvester said everyone seems ea- ger to put problems behind them and move on. "The support offered by the State Fire Prevention Commission and the DVFA, and their desire to forge ahead in rebuilding our Emergency Medical Services Of- fice was more than I could have asked for," he said, "I am very ex- cited about what we can accom- plish together." Greg Haley, Delaware Fire Pre- vention Commission chair, said he sees the new partnership as an op- portunity to further integrate the Emergency Medical Services and Advanced Life Support system; with the result being that all ser- vices will be strengthened. Even though there is a variety of entertainment and socializing built into the schedule, the dele- gates of volunteer companies and ladies' auxiliaries have been busy with their own housekeeping meetings and installations of offi- cers and committees as well. Spe- cial guests have also given speeches and led discussions. Specialists in the field of explo- sives, James Brown and Cliff Lund spoke to the state fire police association meeting on "Explo- sive Awareness." The fire chief's association heard Fire Rescue Chief Donald Flinn speak on the Amtrak/com- muter train collision last winter that took the lives of 13 people. Flinn was the incident commander at the accident. Authorities have placed lighted signs out on Route One and on Rehoboth Avenue extended in- forming the public that they may expect delays Saturday afternoon when the parade is in progress. However, they stress, Rehoboth Avenue will not be closed entirely and vehicles will be able to access both the north and south sides of the city from Rehoboth Avenue Extended. They expect normalcy to re- sume at approximately 4 p.m. YOU HAVE CHOICES!
