10 - CAPE GAZETTE - Tuesday, October 17 - Thursday, Acres Continued from page 1 activities - an outcome opponents say is unnecessary micromanage- ment. The proposal also comes after art league officials announced a plan for $4 million in upgrades to protect the league's art collection and bring buildings up to modern building standards. Art league supporters say the proposal would restrict the league's activities, but others say the commissioners are following the town's comprehensive devel- opment plan to bring all uses in accordance with the town's code. "This is not designed, as rumors have it, to run the art league out of town," said Davis, at the meet- ing's outset. "This meeting is for public comments only," said Davis, who called the proposed amendment both "not perfect" and "somewhat confusing." After a brief presentation and history, town attorney Tempe Steen said, "What's before you today is the planning commis- sion's proposal to replace special exception with conditional use." In an attempt to bring the town's covenants in line with the town code, three conditional uses listed in the proposal are noncom- mercial art gallery, noncommer- cial studio and noncommercial library. The proposal, Steen added, was a voluntary process for the art league. But should the art league become a conditional use entity, permission for activities such as building expansion or certain events, would come from town commissioners, and a supermajor- ity would be necessary. Henlopen Acres property own- ers expressed opinions, followed by public comments at the hear- ing. Many opinions shared Fifteen voices were heard, three in favor of the proposal. Bob Stevens, a local resident and t league member, said, he wants to the see the art league stay in Henlopen Acres, but he also supports the proposal. October 19, 2006 "The art league needs to have some constraints," he said. 'q'he art league has to be answerable to the community." Expanding or changing any art league activity needs to be done in a controlled manner, said Patti Richards, a Rolling Road resident. "What we need is less rumor and more reality plans submitted," she said. "Explicitly, or implied, it is about the art league," said Vincent Roberts, a Georgetown attorney, who supports the art league and opposes the proposal. The art league's preexisting Kevin Spence photo Heniopen Acres Commissioners held a public hearing, Friday, Oct. 13, for a proposal to add a new subsection to the town's code pertaining to conditional uses. It's a move, com- missioners say, that would allow the art league to fit more properly within the town's code. Shown are (l-r) Commissioners David Hill and Charles Koones; AI Danegger, of Lewes, a member of the art league board; Mayor Wanda Davis and Nancy Alexander, the art league's executive direc- tor.
