Hockessin, Del. —
Two community meetings will be held Wednesday about a $525 million redevelopment plan for the DuPont Barley Mill Plaza site near Greenville.


The plan, being proposed by Stoltz Realty Partners, a Bryn Mawr, Pa.-based developer, calls for a 2.9 million-square-foot mixed-use village on the site that includes residences, office space, shops, restaurants and a hotel.

Stoltz will make a presentation about the plan beginning at 7 p.m. at the Odyssey Charter School, 3821 Lancaster Pike, at a meeting being organized by New Castle County Councilman William Tansey (R-Greenville).

County Councilman Robert Weiner (R-Chatham) will host a separate meeting Wednesday at St. Joseph’s on the Brandywine. That meeting will begin at 6 p.m. and also cover two other plans submitted by Stoltz: a $19 million expansion of the Greenville Center shopping area, and a $7 million expansion of the Columbia Gas complex at 20 Montchanin Rd.
Stoltz representatives will only be present at Tansey’s meeting.

“Councilman Weiner was aware of this meeting but chose to schedule a meeting on the same evening,” said Tom Gailey, spokesman for Stoltz Realty Partners. “He was invited to participate but told us his constituents would not participate in any meeting with Councilman Tansey's constituents. We welcome any resident to the meeting Wednesday.”

Gailey said the timing of the meeting was important, since the Barley Mill project is on the July 1 agenda of the New Castle County Planning Board.

“We expect to have future meetings to discuss our Greenville and Montchanin projects as they are scheduled for planning board meetings,” Gailey said.

The Barley Mill project is within Tansey’s district, while the others are in Weiner’s district.

Weiner said he had been requesting a meeting with Stoltz for weeks and was repeatedly told representatives would not be available that evening. He said he believes Stoltz chose to meet with Tansey because Weiner has been more outspoken about the plans.

“Stoltz sees me as a threat and they know if I’m running a meeting all of the pertinent information about the county’s land use law will be discussed,” he said. “Stoltz would be much better served if they chose to work with me.”

"Bob Weiner is one of the best advocates for Brandywine Hundred that I've ever had the pleasure of knowing with his friendly demeanor and well-spoken thoughts. Anyone going into political science or law would be lucky to be mentored by someone like Bob. They'd certainly be a better person for it. All of us in Tavistock appreciate all his support."
