  • At the public’s request, the proposed public hearing regarding potential redevelopment of the former Vlasic Pickle site on Pinnacle Way in Dagsboro has been rescheduled for 6 p.m. on Dec. 17 at the Millsboro Town Hall, 322 Wilson Highway.
    The original date of the hearing was Dec. 4; however members of the public requested a hearing at a later date to allow for more time to review the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control’s brownfield investigation and environmental remediation plan for the site.
    Allen M. Harim Foods has entered into a brownfields development agreement with DNREC with the intent of purchasing the site and converting the facility to a poultry processing plant. A BDA is an agreement between DNREC and a brownfields developer with respect to a Certified Brownfields Site that sets forth a scope of work and remedial activities during development of the site. The public hearing will be held to discuss the proposed plan of remedial action by DNREC’s Site Investigation and Restoration Section.
