In public policy, we are constantly listening for advocacy opportunities. Currently, there’s a proposed commercial rezoning ordinance introduced that would replace the popular CR-1 & B-1 districts with seven new districts that provide more specific uses. On July 14th at 8:30AM, our PCA Members along with PPC will be hosting the Sussex County staff at SCAOR to summarize the proposed revision to the commercial zoning code. Look for an upcoming email with registration information.
On the Sussex County Comp Plan, there will be a Planning and Zoning Workshop on Monday, June 5th @ 9:00 am in Council Chambers. Public Policy encourages all REALTOR® members to participate in these hearings. The collective REALTOR® voice needs to be heard and our Chairman strongly implores our membership to take the time to come out to a public workshop and stay abreast of the Comp Plan developments. This can be done by visiting sussexplan.com. The next set of town hall meetings will be released later this summer.
On June 8th at 6 PM, Sussex County Planning and Zoning will be conducting a public hearing in Council Chambers on the proposal to approve a new energy company. This company converts chicken waste and is proposed to be located behind residential properties along Lewes/Georgetown Highway just east of the CHEER Center in Georgetown.

As the President-elect of SCAOR, I was provided with the opportunity to attend the Annual Legislative Meetings and Expo in Washington D.C. last month. This was my first time attending the event and I must say, this is a trip worthy of taking for not only leaders in a REALTOR® organization but for any REALTOR® who is passionate about their industry.
