Alert #68

New Castle County ordinance would make it easier
to demolish historic buildings

Councilman Rich Abbott has been working for months to weaken protection of historic buildings in New Castle County. Ordinance 00-058, which is on the County Council Agenda for May 23, would reduce the time the Historic Review Board could delay the demolition of a structure from 9 months to 5 months.

Most Green Delaware members want to see historic (cultural) resources protected as well as natural resources. As development rages in Delaware, historic buildings are coming down faster and faster. We believe protection of historic buildings should be STRENGTHENED, not WEAKENED. If you agree please contact your County Council representative.
