Petition Moratorium on All Land Use Proposals

10/27/2014 10:13

Sussex County, Delaware has been experiencing rapid, uncontrolled land development which is jeopardizing the safety and lifestyle of area residents and negatively impacting the beauty, environment, coastal waterways and endangered species in Sussex County.  

Numerous proposals are before the Council for a vote and Nov 4 will elect a new Council more responsive to sensible, sustainable land development. 

That's why I created a petition to Michael H. Vincent, Sussex County Council Member, Sam Wilson, Sussex County Council Member, Joan R. Deaver, Sussex County Council Member, George B. Cole, Sussex County Council Member, and Vance C. Phillips, Sussex County Council Member, which says:

"Seeking Moratorium on All Land Use Proposals before Sussex County Council allowing New Council Members adequate time to evaluate and vote on Proposals – After January 4, 2015 

We, Sussex County Residents of Delaware, request a Moratorium on all Land Use Proposals and/or Zoning Change Requests until after January 4, 2015

November 4 elections will determine new membership of Council 

• New Council is seated on January 4, 2015 

• New Council should be allowed to evaluate and vote on all pending proposals/zoning changes 

• New Council should have the opportunity to make decisions mandated by their voting constituents 


We, the Sussex County Residents listed below, believe that it is inappropriate that an “Exiting Membership” (voted out of office) vote on important land use proposals/zoning changes. 

Respectfully Submitted by the Following Sussex County Residents. 
(Signees have verified they are Sussex County residents)
