Fort DuPont Redevelopment Project

Location Delaware City Delaware
Organization Delaware Greenways, the Environment and Policy Committee of Delaware's Coalition for Healthy Eating and Active Living, Delaware Health and Social Services Division of Public Health

The Fort DuPont Master Planning and Feasibility Analysis began in October 2012 with the aim of determining the best future use of the underutilized 450-acre site owned/managed by the State. The adoption of a final master plan for the Fort DuPont complex will set the direction for future development of the site; however, the plan leaves many important and potentially health-impacting details to future decisions. Both the recommended site master plan and subsequent decisions were and continue to be targets of the HIA, which was completed in June 2013.
