Join Us For The Redevelopment Listening Sessions! Multiple Opportunities To Participate!
The New Castle County Department of Land Use is hosting a series of three Listening Sessions to discuss redevelopment along the major transportation corridors. We invite property owners and other interested stakeholders to join us to share their thoughts and opinions regarding potential redevelopment of commercial properties. We seek to encourage and incentivize well designed sustainable redevelopment of our corridor areas in a manner that is sensitive to adjacent communities. We are interested in hearing your feedback regarding the challenges and opportunities associated with redevelopment.
All Listening Sessions will simultaneously be held in-person and in a virtual setting and will begin at 5:30pm. Please indicate in your registration whether you will participate in-person or virtual.
