Important Announcement: Fenwick Protection Project. Proposed plans for 70 room hotel and restaurant on RT 54
Dear Community Members;
Our “Quiet Resorts” are again under attack from developers wanting to build structures that do not conform nor support the “Quiet Resorts” quality of life we want for our communities.
The Carl M. Freeman Companies are planning to develop the Cannon Farm Property on Route 54 (Lighthouse Road), an iconic 82.63 acre parcel of farm wetlands, which stretches along the north side of the Route 54 Bridge between Treasure Beach & Catch 54. The Freeman companies have already received preliminary approval to build 70 Single Family homes on the property and recently applied for a Conditional Use Permit to build a Hotel and Restaurant in this area (C/U 2236). Our goal is to strongly oppose and possibly stop the Freeman Companies from developing a Hotel and Restaurant on the 9.2 acres on the north side of Route 54 in West Fenwick. We want to protect our wetlands & preserve our quality of life.
If you have concerns regarding the proposed plan, PLEASE MAKE YOUR VOICES HEARD! Send letters of opposition to C/U 2236 - Hotel & Restaurant on parcel 533-20.00-22.00 & 20.00 to Planning & Zoning Director Jamie Whitehouse at:
Sussex County Planning & Zoning Office, 2 The Circle, Georgetown, DE 19947
A public hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, July 27, 2021 @ 1:30 pm. Write or email the Sussex County Council, reach out and contact your local elected officials, send letters to the local newspaper editors, and post to your neighborhood and social media sites.
