The Department of Land Use, Wilmington Area Planning Council (WILMAPCO) and Delaware Department of Transportation (DelDOT) are seeking proposals to perform the Southern New Castle County (SNCC) Master Plan. For the purpose of the RFP, the Southern New Castle County area is comprised of the area within New Castle County located south of the Chesapeake and Delaware Canal. This Master Plan, including the assessment and analysis of anticipated growth, should result in the development of a plan for the area south of the C&D Canal, that informs development and preservation decisions, recommended physical improvements and governmental policies regarding transportation and land use for Southern New Castle County, as implemented through the New Castle County Comprehensive Plan. The end result is to provide an environment to allow for growth and development with mixed-use land development with walkability, bikeability and place-making, while preserving natural and agricultural resources and assets.
The basis for the SNCC Master Plan is to follow up on what has occurred over time since the 2009 Infrastructure Master Plan and the 2003 Local Road Plan were completed in one of New Castle County’s fastest growing areas. This master plan process will be conducted in partnership by WILMAPCO, the New Castle County Department of Land Use, DelDOT and key stakeholders.
*The deadline for proposals is 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 29, 2018 at the WILMAPCO offices.
