Brittingham Property Developers Present Plans for 90 Townhomes on New Road

Posted: Updated:

LEWES, Del.- The developers looking to build 90 "attached villas" off of New Road met with concerned neighbors on Monday night to show their preliminary plans. 

After being annexed into the city of Lewes and rezoned to a residential area two weeks ago, Joe Setting is looking to continue with the permitting process soon. 

"I think our plan covers the requirements of the city's current code now that we're in the city of Lewes," Setting said. 

Setting showed plans to build tree buffers, arrange the necessary road conditions with the Delaware Department of Transportation and protect the area's floodplain.

But neighbors like Debra Evalds says while the plan is still in its early stages, there are still too many ambiguities.

"I hope that they really look at this plan and if they really need to go this high density to turn a profit, maybe this land shouldn't be developed at all," Evalds said. "The poor people who live on New Road cannot even get out onto their street as it is now. So what's going to happen with all of this new construction?"

Setting's team said the development will increase traffic by an average of 587 trips per day.  Setting says he plans to work with DelDot to adhere to the changes that may need to be made.  But Evalds concern is that New Road is an evacuation route for many in that area. 

Another concern neighbors continued to raise was the wetlands in the area and where stormwater would go.  The property sits adjacent to the Canary Creek so people wanted to make sure runoff would not affect the quality of the water there. 

Setting did not have a timeline as to when he plans to submit a formal permit application with the city, but hoped that process would start soon.  During that multi-month process, public hearings will be required.

A meeting on New Road's Master Plan is scheduled for Tuesday at 4 p.m. at Cape Henelopen High School.
