(Feb. 21, 2020) The Sea Oaks residential planned community went through a construction plan review by the Worcester County Technical Review Committee during its meeting last Wednesday. 

The proposed 59-unit townhouse development with 24,570 feet of mixed use will be located on the west side of Stephen Decatur Highway and north of Sinepuxent Road. 

The committee found that the cul-de-sacs are not shown on the plan, but are required. Ronnie Carpenter, the engineer for the project, said that only the temporary cul-de-sacs were shown on the plans.  

The commercial component will consist of 12,000 square feet for contractor shops and 12,750 square feet for office and retail space. 

The residential community passed the third step of preliminary plat review through the Worcester County Planning Commission on Sept. 5. The commercial section then passed a site plan review through the planning commission on Dec. 5. 

There had previously been a lawsuit regarding the county’s equivalent dwelling unit allocation, but that has since been settled.
