On June 24, 2022, the Fenwick Island town council unanimously voted to reinstate the two-year moratorium on new hotel construction which was set to expire on July 24, 2022.  The ban was initially implemented in 2016 following strong community opposition to an ordinance change allowing the expansion of the former Sands Motel from 38 rooms to 65 rooms.  The extension will be in effect through July 2024 and will allow time for studies on the long-term impacts of new hotel construction to the town.

The bill to decrease Delaware’s realty transfer tax by 1%, HB 358, was released from the House Administration Committee on Wednesday, June 22, 2022.  The bill is now assigned to the House Appropriations Committee. This is a very positive first step, which involves additional measures as part of the state legislative review process before coming up for a full vote in the Senate. It is promising that the bill has progressed to this point, and we are hopeful that it will eventually receive full approval and passage.
