The New Road corridor, which has long been a bucolic and quiet part of Lewes, is on the verge of losing its' agricultural heritage and open space. There are presently 6 major development projects pending or in process.
Citizens need to be engaged to save what little open space exists and to influence the character of development. The New Road Preservation Alliance was initially formed to address the sale and development of the Groome property, but is now refocusing to address all properties on or along New Road. Current projects of major concern are the "Lewes Waterfront Preserve" (Brittingham Property) on New Road and "Fishers Cove" behind Rodney Ave near the Lewes Dairy. Both pose serious threats to the Canary Creek watershed. We must be advocates to protect open space near the Great Marsh to preserve the wetlands, archeology, wildlife, agriculture, and history of this beautiful area.
