The promise of Laurel, Delaware

Laurel’s proposed Downtown Development District Plan

Lee Ann is doing extensive work with the Town of Laurel, including a full update of the town’s comprehensive plan in 2016. She recently compiled and submitted the town’s extensive application for a Downtown Development District, working with town officials, nonprofit organizations and government agencies to put together a compelling plan.

A report she completed for the University of Delaware’s Sustainable Coastal Communities Initiative details how the town can grow while meeting federal water quality standards for Broad Creek, which flows to the Nanticoke River and Chesapeake Bay. The work is chronicled on an interactive website she designed and launched.

A powerful blend of planning, political and presentation skills.

That's a lot of alliteration, but it's all true. Patently.
