WOODLAND – Sussex County will hold a public meeting in early June to gather community input on the future of the historic Woodland School House, a nearly 100-year-old structure that served as the center of education in the tiny Nanticoke River village during the early 20th century.

The structure is located on the grounds of the former Woodland Golf Park property, now owned and being repurposed by Sussex County into a low-impact park southwest of Seaford.

As part of the redevelopment project, Sussex County is seeking the public’s feedback on how best to utilize the building, including the potential to move it to a location where it could be put to use by interested civic groups or private citizens.

The meeting will be held at 6 p.m. Thursday, June 4 at Woodland United Methodist Church, 5123 Woodland Church Road, near Seaford.

Representatives from County government will give a presentation about the history of the building and the acquisition process.

The public is invited to attend the meeting to provide feedback and ask questions. The County also will provide an update on the summertime construction of the Woodland Park project.

For more information, please contact County Engineer Michael Izzo at 855-7718.
