Continued Opposition to Ruddertowne Project

Posted: Updated:

DEWEY BEACH, Del.- Construction for the controversial Ruddertowne development project in Dewey Beach is in full swing. However, debate continues over its impact on future construction in Delaware.

Dewey Beach Enterprise, the developer behind the project, is building a hotel with condos and amenities in the heart of Dewey Beach. Controversy has surrounded the project for years due to the height of the structure, but a breakthrough was made it late 2012 when Dewey Beach Enterprise and Dewey Beach town leaders reached a deal to allow a bypass of the 35 foot height restriction.

Some Dewey Beach residents are concerned about the precedent the town has set.

"The procedure for getting zoning approved was nonexistent," said Marcia Schieck of Dewey. "Every other property owner had to follow these procedures in that zoning code and this one property owner did not have to follow any of it."

A group of concerned Dewey Beach residents filed a lawsuit that was rejected, due it being submitted beyond a 60-day statute. The lawsuit was sent to the Delaware State Supreme Court for consideration. Oral arguments will be heard on April 10 in Dover.
