Stockley Center is Getting Some New Additions

Updated:

GEORGETOWN, Del.- A meeting was held on Wednesday to discuss the future of the Stockley Center, a facility built for the purpose of assisting people with developmental disabilities. However, changes are soon to come.  The 750-acre area in Georgetown is evolving and will offer some new additions for the general public.  

Some people are concerned that the center is growing to cater people other than the disabled.

Muriel Pfeiffer, treasurer of the Stockley Auxiliary said, "We feel that the Stockley Center is meant for the handicapped, not for the whole world to be a part of it."

Other community members have a different opinion.  They believe that developing the Stockley Center to include things for the general public, like a botanical garden or walking path, will draw people to the center. It will also offer an opportunity for the residents to integrate with others in the community.  

Last year, more than 100 people contributed ideas and at Wednesday's meeting more ideas were welcomed.
