by Nick Roth, Cape Gazette (DE) The public is invited to comment on a proposed brownfield development agreement for a 1.04-acre parcel near Kings Highway and Beach Plum Drive in Lewes. Comments will be accepted through Monday, Oct. 17.

A coal gasification plant operated on the adjacent property from 1924 to 1932, and coal may have been stored on the site. The property was also home to the Queen Anne Railroad at one time.

According to Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control documents, the property owner intends to sell to prospective developer Hotel California LLC, which intends to build a bakery/restaurant with second-floor apartments.
