The plans are expected to be heard by the county late this year. They have already won praise from Delaware's Planning Office Director Connie Holland Plans call for 12 units per acre and a variety of housing units from apartments to other multi- family units in buildings housing perhaps four to 12 units. There will be underground parking, a large lake and one third of the land is open space. There will also be a vineyard theme and local wine and vineyard type events in keeping with the neigh- boring vineyard of Peggy Raley. Raley and her father, Bob Ra- ley, plan a variety of harvest festi- vals involving the winery and the residents of the planned commu- nity. Located on 82 acres of farm- land, the Vineyard project is de- scribed as "an integrated commu- nity of housing, greenspace, ponds, recreational amenities, convenience retail shopping of perhaps 6,000 square feet approx- imately, and a community center. A diversity of housing types is planned to support a wide range of economic levels, age groups and lifestyle needs."
