New Castle County Draft Comprehensive Plan Available Online

From www.delaforum.com:

COMPREHENSIVE PLAN: A 196-page draft of a plan envisioning New Castle County in 2030 has been posted on the county government website. State law requires that municipal and county governments adopt updated development plans every five years. County Council is scheduled to vote on the update in March following hearings by the Planning Board and receipt of public comments. Charles Baker, general manager of the Department of Land Use, recently told Council that, in an effort to hold down costs, only a limited number of printed copies will be selectively distributed.

According to a press statement issued on Nov. 30 by County Executive Christopher Coons' office, the main feature of the proposed plan is to establish a 'new community development area' south of the Chesapeake & Delaware Canal and 'community redevelopment areas' along major highways in the northern portion of the county. The plan also "proposes allowing more flexibility in design by increasing the number of housing units allowed per acre in limited areas and allowing mixed-use development in some areas," the statement said. 'Targeting' new growth, it said, will protect "the character of our community."
