UD students presented the Leipsic Town Council with revitalization plans
At a meeting held May 2, undergraduate students Nikki Ferrante, Olivia Kirkpatrick, Sarah Morales, Hunter Perry, Matt Tjaden and Austin Virdin presented the Leipsic Town Council with initial concepts to revitalize and redesign existing landscaping and open areas surrounding the Leipsic Town Hall and Maritime Museum. Funded with support from the University’s Sustainable Coastal Communities Initiative (SCCI), which is housed in UD’s College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment, the work is aimed at helping the town to increase low-impact tourism and green infrastructure in the working waterfront community located in Kent County. Virdin will continue working on the project this summer under the guidance of Jules Bruck, associate professor of landscape design in UD’s College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, and Ed Lewandowski, acting Marine Advisory Service director for Delaware Sea Grant and SCCI coordinator.
