Weiner featured in Center for Sustainable Communities Report

As a national leader in housing and sustainable development, Councilman
Weiner initiated New Castle County, Delaware’s Claymont Re-naissance economic redevelopment initiative to revitalize the blighted sections of that historic community.

Using his skills, contacts and knowledge as a land use and growth management expert, he raised the funds to finance the project and organized regular monthly publicly advertised meetings of public and private stakeholder groups and individuals for the purpose of developing a consensus idealized build out plan. The result was a community-endorsed design for a “new urban” mixed-use pedestrian-oriented village along Philadelphia Pike in Claymont.
Local business, civic and historic groups supported by federal, state and county offi cials have worked with Councilman Weiner to attract new business investment to this previously blighted area, resulting in investment of over 130 million dollars of new private investment capital in the region.

Claymont is one of a series of activities initiated by Councilman
Weiner and New Castle County to integrate housing, economic growth
and environmental protection into the development of a cohesive sustainable
community. These efforts include comprehensive mixed-use redevelopment
of the waterfront, a cutting edge county-city unified development code, and an innovative approach to alleviate traffic congestion while supporting
business development. For the Sustainable Housing Council, Councilman Weiner’s primary expertise is drawing attention to the interconnection between housing and overall community development. He is also directly responsible for broadening the CDBG effort to include the historic preservation community.
