Stolen Property Viewing
Tomorrow, Friday, September 21st from 6:00 - 8:00 PM at the Public Safety Building, 3601 N. Dupont Highway, New Castle County Detectives will be having a stolen property viewing in light of recent stolen property (jewelry, coins and electronic devices) that has been recovered and most of which has been linked to burglaries in the following communities:

Eastburn Heights
Brookland Terrace
Brookside Park
Marshallton Heights
Stoney Crest
Willow Run

It is encouraged that residents from those areas that have been a victim of a burglary to attend.  The property will be returned to victims who can provide proof of ownership via police reports and receipts.  Any questions can be directed to Detective B. Shahan at (302) 395-8110 or BShahan@nccde.org

Drug Take Back Event
Medicines play an important role in treating health conditions and diseases, but they must be disposed of with care to avoid harming the environment.  Turn in your unused or expired medication for safe disposal on Saturday, September 29, 2012 from 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM.  Click HERE for collection sites near you. 

There will be a Household Hazardous Waste and Electronic Goods Collection event on Saturday, October 6 from 8:00 AM - 4:00 PM at the Frawley Stadium Parking Lot in Wilmington (801 S. Madison Street).  Please review this FLYER for items that will be accepted.  If you have any questions, please contact the DSWA at 800-404-7080.

Delaware Hospice

This plan is the southwesterly side of Polly Drummond Hill Road and Fox Den Road.  It is proposing to subdivide the existing parcel into two lots.  A 24-bed, 59,978 square foot Hospice facility and associated site improvements will be constructed on this parcel.

The Delaware Hospice plan was tabled at the September 18, 2012 meeting and referred back to the Department of Land Use with questions on the office use.  The plan will most likely be put back on the October 2, 2012 Land Use Committee agenda scheduled for 3:00 PM.  It would then be considered for at the October 9, 2012 Council Meeting at 7:00 PM.  I will keep you updated if anything changes.

I hope you have found this information useful and will share it with your family and friends.  As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact my office.


New Castle County Councilman Tim Sheldon
