Cape Park Continued from page 1 Ruth Ann Minner and Rep. John Schroeder (D-Lewes), Schroeder took exception to the idea that he was bringing political pressure in- to play. Mark Chura of the Delaware Division of Parks and Recreation said the report goes all the way back to 1990 and said there are far larger issues than the idea of bicy- cle paths. Chura, who acted as un- official chair of the meeting, and others have frequently worried that the issue, which helped galva- nize the master plaq process, would overwhelm other issues that may ultimately have a greater impact onthe park. "The bike path has been a cata- lyst," Chura said. "But there are broader issues th!s group must ad- dress:" Chura said he wanted to devel- op a subcommittee to look at the whole issue of trails, paths and routes and to consider possible options between Lewes and Re- hoboth Beach just because the ideas have been so controversial. No one proposed additional Crackdown Continued from page 1 cers also arrested a subject after they were called to Kings High- way by a report of someone at- tempting to sell narcotics in the area. The subject was field- searched and found to have ciga- rette rolling papers on his person. After receiving permission to search the vehicle, the officer found a bag of marijuana and a black container with marijuana "roaches" (partially smoked mari- juana cigarettes). In each of these instances, those arrested are pend- ing trial. "I'm not sure why there's so Derrickson reports on change machine Rehoboth Beach Commissioner Don Derrickson reported at the Oct. 10 board meeting that the Re- hoboth Volunteer Fire Company didn't care for the idea of placing a parking meter change machine, on the Rehoboth Avenue island across from the Convention Cen- ter. The firefighters park their ve- hicles by the island when called in for an emerge.ncy and they felt that they would be obstructed by vehicles stopped to get change. So Derrickson recommended that the machine be placed on thewest end of the island to the east of that one, where it would still be highly visible, and which would not be opposed by the fire company. He also believes that it will not be necessary to remove any parking spaces in the area, as there should be enough room for the few mo- torists who are obtaining change before parking. The first change machine was erected this past summer on an island in the ocean block of The AVenue and Derrick- son would like to get started on building the kiosk. paths or said any would be devel- oped. Chura said he thought it would be good for a separate com- mittee to study all the options and eventually develop a series of pos- sible alternatives. But the steering committee de- cided to wait until the the consul- tants are further along before con- sidering i trail or path subcommit- tee. The consultants for the project were also introduced and gave an overview of the master plan process, Consultants EDAW Inc. is a national firm which has par- ticipated in a number of well- known projectsi including efforts to Preserve the Cape Hatteras, N.C., Lighthouse. The company does landscape architecture, planning, urban de- sign, graphic design, environmen- tal analysis and site engineering. Vice president Cales Givens pledged that the master plan process ;will include plenty of chances for public comment. "We're not going to pave the park," he said. He pledged that the master plan process will tread lightly in an effort to not over- whelm the capacity of the park. Some areas, such as the Cape much marijuana activity right now," said Gooch this week.

"lit will be] lay- ing lightly on the land." The master plan is due to be de- veloped by Oct. 31, 1998. Among the issues that are expected to be considered are possible expansion of the park boundaries, carrying capacity, possible arts and educa- tion opportunities, whether satel- lite parking should be developed beyond Cape Henlopen's bound- aries and balancing environmental protection with recreational mis- sions. Steering committee member Kevin Moore complained at one point about the lack of cohesive- ness when another member said the group had no guiding philoso- phy. That prompted Delaware Parks and Recreation Division Director Chaz Salkin to say that the Divi- sion isn't trying to promote an agenda and that everyone "needs to make this a Very positive process." Salkin drew applause when he told the group that "this is the chance to do it right and have fun doing it." more drugs around than ever be- fore. I'd still like to look into get- ting a drug-sniffing dog. I think it' s needed." Gooch said he plans to talk to community groups about the need, to try to build support. fl lit (P,,fl[T TiCTIVIW 001)10 Adults & Children Paint Your Own Pottery Mosaics Candle Rolling Sculpy Projects Basketry Woodworking CREATABLE CRAFTS 146 Rehoboth Ave. 227-1020 RUSS PALMER BUILDERS Proudly lnvites You . = ii W/&P SWEEPSTAKES 1 I \\;CHWUBUJ 1 CHEVY 5-10 WINaCar & a Truck!
