A Foxwoods attorney told an impatient Gaming Control Board last month that
by Feb. 5, he expected his client to have reached a tentative agreement with
a prospective new investor, and that the document attesting to that would be
delivered to the gaming board's enforcement arm for a review.

So has that happened?....

City Hall Must Amend the Waterfront Zoning Overlay

This is a request to all of NABR’s supporters to help us advocate for good waterfront development. NABR has been working through the Central Delaware Advisory Group (CDAG) to add essential amendments to Councilman DiCicco's interim zoning overlay legislation for the Central Delaware. This is the legislation that will regulate development and public access along the river until the Master Plan is in place. We are particularly advocating for:

  • A 100' setback from the edge of the river.
