There are groups that have risen in recent years calling for reasonable growth based on planning and vision. They may be small today, but it would not be as each of us counts as one more in numbers.
In times like this, we see groups work together toward common goals and we cheer and encourage them as they lead.
We thank Rich Borrasso of SARG for speaking at Council's Public Hearing against CU2176 with factual data based on Henlopen Transportation Improvement District (TID).
SURGE believes that Sussex County is a prosperous and thriving place and the quality of life is envied by many other communities.There is a diversity of neighborhoods, across hundreds of square miles.
SURGE was formed as a result of the ever-worsening transportation crisis compounded by chaotic development that further intensifies these challenges. As building continues at its current rate, police, fire, emergency, medical, schools and school services are unable to be adequately provided. SURGE also sees a community that is more and more unaffordable with a widening gap between our highest earners and everyone else.
But the good news is we can ensure that every resident fully — and equally — benefits from living in our wonderful community. We can do this by charting a comprehensive and fully inclusive vision for future growth with adequate public facilities accompanying the increase in residential and commercial construction. The even better news is that the residents of Sussex County are hungry for just such a vision.
The Sussex County Council needs to put the Coastal/ESDA Overlay Zone area of the county under a moratorium that will block new, planned or being built residential buildings or units for at least one year. The moratorium takes effect upon the Council’s approval.

Thank you for your interest in the Inland Bays Foundation. We look forward to you joining us in our efforts to overcome the challenges facing our Inland Bays: Rehoboth, Indian River and Little Assawoman. Over time the Bays Estuary has changed from being primarily an agricultural area to one with ever-growing urban encroachment. The facts are our Watershed is severely polluted from sources including growing bacterial pollution from failed septic systems and increased amounts of nutrient pollution from storm water. IBF has been very active in speaking out and lobbying for Clean Water Legislation and more effective enforcement of DNREC regulations.
Please join us and through our numbers send the message to the legislature and the Governor that business as usual is not acceptable.
