This website is intended to keep you up to date as Bridgeville updates its 10-year comprehensive plan. We may formally ask for your opinion or suggestion via a survey or discussion board, but you are always welcome to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
While the State of Delaware requires towns with a population greater than 2,000 to update its plan with certain required elements, the plan should reflect the vision and desires of its leaders and residents. What is the character of the town? What is the balance between residential and commercial development, between business growth on Market Street and along US 13? In which direction should the town grow? Is the town providing adequate housing choices for all its citizens? How is it providing services such as sewer and water? Is there room for growth?
Bridgeville has a story to tell, and the plan will help tell it. This blog, “If You Lived Here . . . ” will provide interesting information as it is uncovered and/or written into the draft plan. Just the Census data alone provide encouraging evidence of how Bridgeville has improved the quality of life for people who call this town home.
The goal is to complete a draft plan by February 2018. This is actually a fairly ambitious timeline, but much work already has been accomplished in the areas of wastewater infrastructure, water quality protection, downtown development and branding, and residential growth.
