June 2014 — Cedar Creek Planning & Communications — In June 2014, Governor Jack Markell signed House Bill 310, which creates the Fort DuPont Redevelopment Corporation.
Since it closed as a military installation, it has become home to Governor Bacon Hospital and a hodgepodge of state uses. The historic buildings are in various stages of deterioration. Fort DuPont is Delaware’s least visited state park. But the site is bounded by water on three sides, offers spectacular views of Delaware Bay and Fort Delaware, and is well-known for the quality of birding there.
