3rd Wave and Delmar P & Z

Third Wave Brewing company
is located on Bi-State between Rose St and York street in Delmar, Delaware.  They came here in 2012 to brew craft beer.  They have done well.  About February 2015 they came before Planning and Zoning about an expansion.  I happened to be at the meeting and asked the question of Planning and Zoning and the owners of the Third wave if the requested extension on to the original IGA store would not create a problem with delivery trucks blocking Rose street.  Everyone looked at me as though I had no idea what I was talking about.  I think the owners said they had never heard of such a thing.  Well, as you can see from these photos taken today;  P&Z and the owners of 3rd Wave didn't know shit.   If any of them had been in Delmar or observed anything in their time in Delmar they would have known this was a common problem when the IGA had the refrigerated box on the end of building. 

Now my bitching is less about a delivery truck blocking a street and more about how P&Z, if they want a business in Delmar, will ignore obvious problems.  No one wanted to talk about a delivery truck blocking a street because they wanted 3rd wave to stay in Delmar.  The simply comment by P&Z that there may be slight problems in the future but the town will address them if they become serious would have satisfied me.
