In anticipation of a busy weekend in Sunbury, we wanted to let you know about some recent happenings in the village.
Construction season is in full swing now that the rain has let up, including under the bridge at Columbus Street and on Letts Avenue. You may have to make an unexpected detour.
A local motorist on the What’s Happening in Sunbury page appreciated having grass and brush cleared along routes 36/37 west of the light when turning right on Cheshire Road to give a clearer view of oncoming traffic.
The village’s Facebook page posted, “Sunbury Meadows folks — please be aware that ‘no parking’ signs have popped up in your neighborhood. For the next couple of days, crack sealing will occur. On Aug. 6, the micro-sealing process will begin —weather permitting. This may necessitate in no parking restrictions and lane restrictions during that time frame.”
Speaking of Sunbury Meadows, the village’s Planning and Zoning Commission approved 66 additional homes developed by Pulte. It next goes before council.
Delaware General Health District has opened its new Sunbury office at the shopping center at routes 3 and 36/37. In addition, it is currently investigating a confirmed case of Legionnaires’ Disease recently contracted by a resident at Country-View of Sunbury nursing home.

You may have noticed a building going up off of Miller Drive behind the Advance Auto Parts, and near the assisted living facility. It’s a dental office/professional building.
Voss Bros. may be adding a storage facility for its lawn care equipment in Sunbury. Owner Jeff Voss went before Sunbury’s Planning and Zoning Commission on Monday, April 29.
