Levy Court passed several zoning change requests at its July 29 meeeting. Approvals included Meding & Son Seafood, a Cheswold car wash, a Tidwater water tower in Frederica, and a Mennonite school in Hartly


    It was a good night for zoning applications in front of Levy Court July 29 as commissioners unanimously approved all petitions on the agenda.

    Among the applications approved were:
 
   • A zoning change to general business for a one-acre parcel next to Meding & Son Seafood on Route 113 in Frederica. The restaurant and seafood retailer plans to expand it’s kitchen and restaurant, said owner Robbie Meding.
 
   • A car wash similar to the one located in front of the Camden Wal-Mart for a one-acre lot on Route 13 south of Cheswold. Sewer service to the site is expected to be complete in two weeks, the engineer said.
 
   • Tidewater Utilities’ request to build a 170-foot-tall water tower at the rear of the Carpenters Bridge Crossing subdivision in Frederica. The Public Service Commission already approved the 400,000-gallon tank, which will be similar to the tower located near Postlethwait Middle School, said Mark Dunkle, an attorney representing Tidewater.
 
   • The Central Mennonite Church in Hartly, which was given the OK to construct a new building on its 31-acre site. It will include a multi-purpose room and more parking, said William Byler, church representative.

    “We’re a growing church in the community there,” he said.

   An ordinance was introduced that would extend the waiting times for intersections within the growth zone. A public hearing will be set at a future date.
