LEWES, Del.- Roughly 200 people turned out in Georgetown on Tuesday to be a part of the public comment session about a proposed RV park in Sussex County.

The Love Creek RV Resort and Campground is being proposed in a 162-acre area just outside of Lewes.  The site would be developed for RVs, tents and cabins.  But some local neighbors are making their voices heard in opposition to the project.

"It may be a great idea, but it's the wrong location," said Lawrence Sholler of Lewes.

Many have concerns over the environmental impact to the creek and others are worried about traffic.

"The roads back there are very narrow, they don't have shoulders, there is already a high incident of accidents on 24, where we live. In fact, trying to get out of our development, because they won't give us a light, is a nightmare sometimes, just to get out," said Brian Disney of Lewes.

Project developers say additional environment buffering would be added to the site.  Developers call the project a high end development that would be a job creator for the area.  The park would be seasonal, being open from April 1st to October 31st.  It is also being billed as a tourism boost during the summer months.  But there is no denying the opposition.  The county council said it received over 200 letters against the project and 800 signatures on a petition, and just 11 letters in favor.

"I think I can safely say, the majority of people around the campsite do object to it," said Sholler.

A decision has yet to be made about the park's future, but much of the public has already made up their mind.
