Brandywine Town Center-Community Outreach Presentation (10/12/2022)

Above is a graphic rendering shown to the public at a Community Outreach Presentation.

The slide presentation outlines site design alterations to the Brandywine Town Center (BTC) that the owner (Acadia) presented at a meeting held at the BTC Community Center on 10/12/22.

The change to the deed restrictions is needed to reduce the pond from its current 4 acres to 2 acres in order to provide space for the five buildings shown in the most recent drawings of the site. (Caution: one slide shows an earlier version that was presented at the Brandywine Hundred Library back in June 2022.)

This is for informational and community feedback. The community has not taken a position on this proposal.

Here is a link to the full slide presentation.

Foulk Road – Public Workshop

Proposed Reconstruction and Reconfiguration Project

Brandywine Hundred Library – Multi-Purpose Room
1300 Foulk Road
WILMINGTON

Tuesday 07/12/2022
4:00 PM to 7:00 PM

The Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) is holding a Public Workshop to solicit public input for the proposed reconstruction and reconfiguration of Foulk Road from Weldin Road to the Pennsylvania state line.  The purpose of this project is to reconstruct the failing pavement, remedy drainage issues, and to reconfigure the road to create space for a continuous sidewalk, bicycle lanes, a center left turning lane, and one lane of travel for each direction. 

The reconfiguration will reduce utility pole relocation impacts to properties and minimize the need for additional Right-of-Way, while improving the safety and operation of the road.  Attendees will have an opportunity to review the intersection improvements and provide comments to DelDOT representatives.

Interested persons are invited to express their views in writing, giving reasons for, or in opposition to, the proposed improvements.  Comments will be received during the workshop, submitted online or can be mailed to DelDOT Community Relations, P.O. Box 778, Dover, DE 19903 or sent via email to dotpr@state.de.us.
