We will release our action plan in early 2018. Stay posted!
A group of concerned citizens who have formed an alliance to educate and organize locals about the pending land sale of the Groome United Methodist Church 135 acre parcel on New Road to developers.
The people we have spoken to have been overwhelmingly in support of preserving the New Road corridor along the Great Marsh. Visit our "In the News" page to read letters from other locals who oppose further developing the New Road corridor .
As citizens of the great first town in the first state, we are working to preserve the New Road corridor that abuts the Great Marsh, our last open natural area east of route one in Lewes. Once this land is developed it is gone forever. Neither the water table or the road can withstand the potential for almost 1500 building lots on this now open space. We cannot sit quietly and watch the beauty that has attracted so many to our lovely town be destroyed, as we are dedicated to preservation in Lewes.
In an effort to encourage the Groome Methodist Church to reverse its' decision to sell their property on New Road for development, and instead sell it for conservation, the New Road Preservation Alliance has been collecting signatures at various Lewes locations for the last few weeks. We quickly received a thousand signatures and will continue to accumulate more.
