Still No Choice On Delaware RV Parks
It’s been seven months since the public record was closed and nearly six months since the last action on applications for the controversial Love Creek RV Resort and Campground. It’s been about the same amount of time since the record was closed on two similar applications for a second proposed campground, Castaways at Massey’s Landing, Delaware’s Cape Gazette reported.
Sussex county’s planning and zoning commission has recommended approval of both projects.
County Council President Mike Vincent said he is not stonewalling the process. He said he is following county council protocol, and he plans to get the two RV park applications on an agenda within the next two to three months.
He said the Massey’s Landing project will be first on an agenda within the next three to four weeks because it was the first one acted on by the county’s planning and zoning commission. The Love Creek project applications will follow within another month or so.
Jack Lingo Asset Management has filed two applications for Love Creek RV Resort and Campground between Lewes and Rehoboth Beach. The developer is asking for a conditional use and a zoning change for 74 acres of the parcel. If approved, the entire 162-acre parcel would be zoned the same.
Included on the site plan are 628 camping sites: 516 for recreational vehicles, 30 for tents and another 82 sites for rental cabins. Proposed amenities are an amphitheater/chapel, welcome center, fitness center, laundry, clubhouse, general store, several pavilions and paddle boat launches, canoe outfitter, pumping station, swimming ponds, pools and RV storage.
The other proposed campground, Massey’s Landing, would contain 322 RV sites and 10 tent sites. Planned amenities include a swimming pool, pavilions, general store, welcome center, dog park, cafe, snack bar, bath houses, nature center, two lodges, fishing and crabbing piers, rental center for golf carts and a rental center for kayaks, canoes and other nonmotorized watercraft.
