Keep an Eye out for Unusual Activity

Please be alert and call police if you see anything unusual. Better safe than sorry!

New Castle County police are investigating a series of burglaries at homes in the northern part of the county Monday.
Officers fielded five residential burglary reports during the day in Nordic Dell, South Graylyn Crest, Webster Farms and Sherwood Gardens, Cpl. Tom Jackson said. Another three burglaries were reported in the Harbor House apartment complex during the same time, as well, he said.
County detectives are heading up the investigation and ask anyone with information to contact police.
The department also reminded residents to lock their doors and windows while leaving the house, as well as consider investing in a residential alarm that will call police to the scene faster, Jackson said. Residents should also “Park Smart” — lock your vehicle, secure valuables and take the keys with you, he added.
Anyone who spots a vehicle out of place should contact police at (302) 573-2800, 911 or
Tips may also be provided to Delaware Crime Stoppers at (800) TIP-3333, on Facebook at New Castle County Police Department or through the New Castle County Police smartphone application.

Stay Safe this Holiday

With the holidays approaching we just wanted to take a moment and remind everyone to keep an eye out for suspicious activity. If possible have someone home or talk with a neighbor about receiving packages rather than leaving them at your front door. And as always, make sure to lock your cars at night.

Community Meeting Notice – Forwood School Parcel Development Plans





6:30 p.m.


Compliments of Bob Weiner, your County Councilman

“Making County Government Work for Us”

Council District 2, New Castle County, DE

Louis Hinkle, aide to Councilman Weiner: 302-395-8362

I am pleased to facilitate a community meeting on Wednesday, July 8, 2015 at 6:30 p.m. at the Brandywine Hundred Library on Foulk Road to discuss the Forwood Property located on Silverside Road.  The developer has been working closely with the Department of Land Use over the last several months regarding potential options and is now prepared to present a Plan to the community.  In our effort to keep you up to date on what is happening in our community, here is information about the proposed plan provided by the developer.


Developer Joe Setting, of Montchanin-based Setting Properties Inc., wants to develop the former Forwood School near Silverside and Marsh roads to make way for Branmar Commons, a 35-townhouse and commercial project. Plans for the 12-acre site call for three-story townhomes and five buildings with 30,000 square feet of retail, restaurants, bank coffee shop and a pharmacy. (See added information below)











The proposed Branmar Commons is intended to be a pedestrian oriented, walkable village with a high quality architectural design.  It is comprised of a mixture of uses, including retail, a restaurant, a bank, a pharmacy, a coffee shop, and approximately 35 residential dwelling units, clustered around open space greens, on approximately 12 acres of land located along Silverside Road between the Shoppes of Graylyn and the Silverside Dairy Commercial Complex.  Reclaimed stone from the existing Forwood Schoolhouse will be repurposed into a small scale replica of the schoolhouse on the site to create an attractive focal point for the village.  The proposal would be to create a community that encourages its residents, as well as residents of the surrounding communities, to visit the village and spend a portion of their day there, enjoying and visiting (by foot) all of the amenities and benefits that the village will offer. The existing neighborhoods have been substantially buffered from the village with a combination of landscaping and natural vegetation. The buffer ranges from 60’ to 175’. All buildings will be setback a minimum of 100’ from the existing property line adjacent to the neighborhoods.  Plans for the proposal, including architectural drawings, will be presented at the scheduled community meeting.  A zoning change from the New Castle County Council will be required.


For additional information or questions, please contact our office at 302-395-8362.
