Jack Markell on Environment

Delaware Democratic Governor


Delaware has moved to the top ten of bike friendly states

Improving our Quality of Life: In the world we now live in, employers survive only when they hire the most talented workers. And talented employees want to work in places they are proud to call home.

Delaware is blessed with beautiful beaches, parks, & scenic farmland. Preserving and improving that quality of life is vital. In the years to come, Delawareans will be able to walk and bike to work because of the investments we are making today. Delaware is now in the top ten of bike friendly states, up from 31st four years ago. Our First State Trails and Pathways Initiative is connecting neighborhoods, parks, and downtowns throughout our state. The Pomeroy Trail connects Newark to White Clay Creek State Park. We're linking Lewes, Rehoboth and eventually Georgetown with a series of interconnected trails. We're enhancing and expanding recreational access to the Nanticoke River and Broad Creek. Projects like these improve our quality of life and make our state a magnet for talented workers.
