Dewey Beach Enterprise Waiting On DNREC Approval For Baywalk

Posted: Updated:

DEWEY BEACH, Del. - In a few months, Dewey Beach Enterprises' Ruddertowne project will finally complete its first phase in building a luxury hotel/condominium complex.

But opening it's doors to the public is contingent upon one aspect, building a baywalk.

"Who wouldn't want to be for this? It's giving people access to the water in a public way," said James Baeurle, Dewey Beach Enterprises. "This is something that the town had asked us to present to DNREC as part of the overall complex."

DNREC is meeting with locals, the town and project representatives to hear from the public about the baywalk and expanding the public beach out by 70 feet. The proposed path is already staked off in the water.

According to town officials, the baywalk is a part of the mutual agree and release which states that "the town shall act in good faith with DBE in obtaining approval for the baywalk."

Baeurle says that "we're going to get some approval from DNREC that's going to allow us to build a baywalk in the water."

At this time, the Hyatt and luxury condominiums are scheduled to open up Memorial Day Weekend. So far, Dewey Beach Enterprises says they have already sold six condos.
