Open house to introduce proposed Fenwick state park improvements

DNREC’s Division of Parks & Recreation will host a public open house from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 2, to review potential improvements to Fenwick Island State Park as part of a public-private partnership. The open house will take place at the Fenwick Island Town Hall, 800 Coastal Highway, Fenwick Island.

A display of existing conditions, proposed improvements and maps will be available for the public to view. Recommended improvements include methods for increasing public safety and relieving traffic congestion, upgraded infrastructure and the addition of new recreational amenities, which officials said will meet the needs of increased visitation. Members of the community are being encouraged to attend to share thoughts, ask questions and leave comments, they noted.
