DOVER, Del.- On more than 88 acres, the Delmarva Boy Scouts are building a campground site with plans of adding a 1,000-seat amphitheater.
"It'll be a beautiful state-of-the-art campfire that Scouts will remember for years to come," Jason Pierce said.
But construction comes at a cost. "The theater will be about $375,000," he said.
The price for the Boy Scouts could come down if they are able to partner with the Kent County Levy Court to share the space and the price tag.
"It would mean the opportunity to offer some kind of service for residents, whether it's movie night or bring in concerts in or speeches and the county would have that just play to go that's really nice," said Levy Curt Commissioner Jody Sweeney.
Sweeney said the court was already looking into building an amphitheater when the opportunity arose.
"Anytime we can get multiple use out of a facility, it's really a bonus for the entire program," said Loyd Alexander with the Boy Scouts.
But not everyone thinks it would be a good use of county money.
"There's so many things that county money could be used for and at this point I'm not sure if it's good or not," Patricia Ross said.
Talks are still in the early stages and no county money has been committed to the project yet.
