Lewes Considers Drone Usage in City Parks

Posted: Updated:

LEWES, Del.- Flying drones is already restricted in many local, state, and national parks. And now, one Sussex County city is looking into its own stance on drone use. 

The Lewes Mayor and Council held a discussion on drone usage at Monday night's council meeting, but no decisions were made. This comes after the city's parks and recreation commission recommended discussing possible regulations and restrictions.

WBOC spoke with some people at Canalfront Park who say they're not too thrilled with the idea of drones overhead. 

"We bring our grandchildren here, they don't need to be distracted by that," said Marilyn Bursch. "I would like it to be elsewhere, sort of like a skateboard park. Couldn't there be a drone park?"

The city of Lewes isn't the only area in Sussex County looking at their drone usage policies.

Earlier this year, Bethany Beach unanimously passed an ordinance limiting the use of drones within city limits.
