DE Center for Inland Bays seeks public input for conservation plan
REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. – After about 25 years, the Delaware Center for Inland Bays is updating its comprehensive conservation and management plan to ensure they continue to preserve and restore the inland bays. The comprehensive plan will help the center outline goals, prioritize issues, and strategize primary concerns over the next 10 years. Officials say they’ve been working on this draft for the past three years. But now, they’re seeking public input on the plan to make sure the center is addressing every concern, issue, and idea people in the community may have.
“We want to ensure that we’re capturing all of the concerns that folks may have, all of the problem areas that they may see and we just want to be sure that the work that we’ll be doing, will improve their life by improving the bays, by improving habitats,” said Watershed Coordinator, Michelle Schmidt.
Officials say that the public comment period on the draft will be open from now until November 15th. To submit a comment, all you have to do is head to the center’s website here. They add that they hope to have the plan finalized by the spring of 2021.
