What started sussex2030 group is the Sussex County vision of 2030.
However, we realize Sussex County of 2030 is meaningless unless the citizens of Sussex County together can journey there together. So, we are mindful of the people of Sussex County today.
In the midst of coronavirus (COVID 19) outbreak and expensive lockdown, our attention turns to how we are doing today.
Let's hear and collect our ideas and experiences to help and dig out our community.
Other Non-Government Groups:
It is about Sussex County, Delaware - the beautiful land, beach, people . . . - known as Slower-Lower-Delaware.
This group started in August 2019 to fight the Conditional Use (CU2176) of an Agricultural-Residential zone for a huge gas/diesel station with a 24/7/365 convenience store in a precarious location in Angola, between Lewes and Millsboro, on Rt. 24. After this project was denied in January 2020, the group recognized the need of a citizens group that is united for the brighter future of Sussex County.
Forward-thinking residents of Sussex County formed this apolitical grassroots group with a vision of Sussex County in year 2030. Launching this in March 2020, we decided a 10-year benchmark is realistic and it will let us work with attainable goals. As years go by, we could evaluate our past progress and adjust future goals, but our main focus will remain the same - the bright future of our beloved County.
What we envision by year 2030:
Sussex County with its natural beauty and relaxed lifestyle that younger generations find as an attractive and promising place to settle down for their family and generations to come.
In order for this vision to be realized, we believe the following necessary, though most are the purview of County administration and we would only participate when called for:
Sussex2030's persistent focus will be on number 1 and 2. Its subgroups will pursue furthering their top concerns and coordinate with internal/external groups and organizations as circumstances arise.
Our mission is to promote the development of a comprehensive infrastructure to support sustained growth for advanced technology, excellent work opportunities, sophisticated education, and public policies that enhance Sussex County.
