People often ask, "How do I find out about meetings?". Here is all the information in one place.
We need your presence and voices at these meetings in order to let our elected and appointed officials know how we, the citizens and stakeholders of Lewes, feel about the development of the New Road Corridor.
Delaware is a small state and citizen voices have more impact than in larger states. If you moved from a larger state please be a part of our smaller, and more accessible, government. Be the change you want to see!
We do our best to list important meetings in the next section, but sometimes can't keep up. Citizens need to be active and engaged, so we are asking you to take some ownership by regularly checking for upcoming meetings. Thanks!

Here are the meetings that are of critical importance to our concerns.
Please attend and let your neighbors know too.
Approximately 160 people packed the Margaret H. Rollins Center on 12/14/17 for the GLCC Meeting about New Road. We collected many signatures on our petitions and heard from many concerned citizens. The opposition to developing this parcel was the overwhelming and obvious sentiment of the crowd. We thank the Greater Lewes Civic Coalition for hosting this meeting and for all the support from the community.
We are taking a break for the holidays and will release an action plan early in 2018. We have had a lot of media and citizen interest resulting from the meeting. Please continue to check our website, follow us on Facebook, and sign up for emils (if you did not sign up at the meeting).

We need and appreciate support and involvement from the greater Lewes community.
