Councilman Weiner has spearheaded the Claymont Renaissance economic redevelopment initiative in 2000 to revitalize this historic community. He assisted in raising over $250,000 of seed money through government grants and private corporate contributions to finance the Claymont Renaissance planning phase and was instrumental in organizing regular monthly meetings of public and private stakeholders for the purpose of developing a consensus idealized build out plan. Local business, civic and historic groups, supported by federal, state and county officials have worked with Councilman Weiner to attract new business investment to this previously blighted area, resulting in an initial commitment to invest over 300 million dollars of new private investment capital in the community.

"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."
