Councilman Bob Weiner Spearheaded and Launched the Claymont Renaissance  

Utilizing his experience gleaned from his leadership role with the National Association of Counties as well as his professional experience as a Land Use attorney, Councilman Bob Weiner spearheaded and led the conceptualization of the innovative award-winning Claymont Renaissance from its inception in 2000. He personally raised over $300,000 in private funds, applied for a Federal Department of Transportation TCSP Grant for $100,000 and secured a half million dollars of in kind services and direct funding from both New Castle County and the State of Delaware to underwrite the initial planning costs. Working with Thomas Comitta $ Associates, land planners, he lead the community effort to develop a community endorsed idealized build out plan and a detailed Manual of Design Guidelines. He worked with community stakeholders to develop a State Department of Transportation investment plan, which was paid for in great degree by the federal funding which he secured. Utilizing the grant funding, Councilman Weiner leveraged a commitment from the State Department of Transportation to invest $19 million in streetscaping improvements.

Visit www.claymontrenaissance.org for info about Claymont Renaissance Village, the new urban village in unincorporated New Castle County a 10 minute walk from the SEPTA R-2 train station. Phase 2 will be much larger: a new village which incorporates and envelopes both the train station and the almost mile of Delaware River frontage to build a billion dollar mixed use walkable transit oriented village with access to both the river boat hydrofoil commuting line. The Phase 1 [Renaissance Village, now under construction] and Phase 2, are both along Interstate 95, 20 minutes drive from Philadelphia Airport and 30 minute drive from center City Philadelphia.

The Claymont Renaissance Village site (formerly known as Brookview) has been cleared and now construction will now commence. The aerial photos depict the strategic location of this mixed use compact walkable transit oriented traditional neighborhood design village.

"I am grateful for Bob's decade-long support for the Washington-Rochambeau Revolutionary Route National Historic Trail, which follows Philadelphia Pike and Market Street into Wilmington. His presence and influence at the birth of our Delaware organization to develop this trail and to have it designated as a National Historic Trail was a key factor in keeping our hopes for the trail alive and growing."
