New Castle Co. hosts town hall for MOT area residents

Delaware Public Media

New Castle County residents are being invited to participate in a community town hall Thursday night.


New Castle County Executive Matt Meyer says he and his administration specifically want to engage with southern New Castle County residents.

They’re looking for their feedback about plans for increasing services in the Middletown, Odessa, Townsend area and the effort to develop a comprehensive land-use plan for the area south of the C&D Canal.

“What you’re going to see us doing over the next six weeks is going across this County and listening to residents of our County  - hearing what they want out of their County government. We’re going to be delivering a budget address later this month and particularly in the MOT (Middletown, Odessa and Townsend) area, which is the fastest growing area in our State,” Meyer said.

Meyer says his administration is committed to enhancing services that save lives, protect the public health and build quality of life.


“We’re going to be talking about some of our land-use planning and farmland preservation efforts. We’re going to be talking about our efforts to locate and build a paramedic station (facility), to provide faster response times when there is an urgent medical need. We’re going to be talking about our effort to expand the Appoquinimink library and our efforts to improve parks and park amenities” Meyer said.

Meyer says the Town Hall will start with a short presentation about southern New Castle County Park plans, expanded library services and a county paramedic station.

The town hall is this Thursday, March 15th, starting at 5:30 at the Odessa Fire Hall.  It will also be streamed live on the county’s Facebook page.
