One of the primary reasons for these recommendations is eco- nomics. "They've got a lot of tourists there, and if the bays have fish kills, people won't want to come visit," said Lyle Jones, Program Manager for Watershed Assess- ment, for Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Envi- ronmental Control. "They could starts deteriorating, they may not and phosphorous levels by strictly want to." Even though the recommenda- tions may be expensive and repre- sent a change for most residents, officials are convinced it needs to be done. "Yes, there will certainly be op- position," said Ed Lewandowski, executive director of Center for the Inland Bays. "Many people are resistant to change."

The existing ratio of bar area to permanent seated dining is 153 percent, but because the Frogg Pond received its liquor license before 1991, when the ratio re- striction was put into place, the restaurant was allowed to contin- ue operating. The ratio would be reduced to 76 percent by the planned expan- sion, but because of the renova- tions, the restaurant would no longer be grandfathered and would be required to meet the 25 percent requirement, officials said. Kee said she "thought we were pretty much on target," and she said the plans can be revised to comply with the city code if the commissioners tabled the applica- tion. In addition to space issues, Alex Moore, director of operations for the Avenue Inn opposed the Frogg Pond's expansion plans. He said that there have been complaints from guests who stay on the east side of the hot', which shares the back wall of the Frogg Pond. The restaurant was there before the inn, Moore said, so he has not previously reported the com- plaints. However, he said. the Frogg Pond has a history of noise violations and "the expansion of the bar would exasperate the cur- rent conditions." Kee said that the purpose of the expansion is to go "from a small eatery to a much better restaurant" and that the "addition is not for bar use." Because the application will be substantially revised before it comes before the commissioners again, Haslow must submit a new application for another prelimi- nary hearing. According to commissioners, the hearing would likely be held in January but is dependent on when the new application is sub- mitted. ur to ne JeweloP m Whether you've had a few accidents, tickets, simple lapses in coverage or no previous coverage at all, Nationwide is on your side.We realize that, sometimes, bad things hap- pen to good people.
