The Delaware General Assembly has not passed a law allowing the construction of a gambling venue jn Sussex, and the facilities on the books, in- cluding projects in MiUsboro and Georgetown, are either within town limits or areas planned for annexation, said county attorney J. Everett Moore. The county put the moratori- um in place to allow time for staff to update the county's code relating to casinos. Moore said he needed guidance from council. He J. Everett Moore said among the options are writing a specific ordinance for casinos or allowing a conditional use for casino construction. "There is also no ability by the county to regulate the footprint of the building," Moore said, adding it might be prudent to provide new regulations, for all large buildings constructed in the county. He said a key element council must address is where Casinos should be permitted. "Would a conditional use ap- ply to all districts or just com- . mercial and business districts?" Moore asked. Councilman George Cole, R- Ocean View, said the ordinance had to be fo- cused on land use and not the gambling issue. "The or- dinance has to deal with size and location," he said. "We have to George Cole be careful where we al- low a casino," said Council- woman Joan Deaver, D-Re- hoboth Beach. Cole said a condi- tional use might be too unstruc- "tured and allow for loopholes. Lawrence Lank, director of coun- ty planning and zoning, said if written properly, a conditional use with strict conditions could cover the bases. Council Presi- dent Vance Phillips, R-Laurel, asked Moore if the county was acting prematurely because the state has not passed a law allow- ing the expansion of casino gam- bling into Sussex. "We can create regulations in advance of state law," Moore said. He also said different legis- lators give different answers as to whether gambling will be ex- panded to.Sussex. Council voted 5-0 to reintroduce the moratori- um ordinance. "But this time we need to make sure it's placed on an agenda prior to termination," Cole said.
