BURLINGTON, Delaware: Supporters of a referendum that would ask Town Meeting representatives and selectment to support selling a 250 acre portion of town-owned land must now work to get it placed on a 2010 ballot. The town board voted 3-2 on a motion against putting the referendum on the ballot. As a result, supporters must now collect 1,600 valid signatures from registered voters in town if they want the referendum on the ballot.[1]

The land, known as the Land-locked Forest, would be sold to the development group Patriot Partners, and would most likely be developed into a retirement community.
