The City of Seaford is beginning the process of updating their Comprehensive Plan. The Comprehensive Plan is a document in text and maps, containing the City's development strategy setting forth the position on population and housing growth within the jurisdiction, expansion of its boundaries, development of adjacent areas, redevelopment potential, community character, the general uses of land within the community, and critical community development and infrastructure issues. It is required by State law and is certified by the Governor.

The City partnered with KCI Technologies, Inc. on the project. As a resident, property owner, tenant, business owner, employee, or visitor to the City, YOUR INPUT IS VITAL as we develop the Plan.


The current Comprehensive Plan was approved by Governor Jack Markell and is certified until January 10, 2020. The City is currently updating the Comprehensive Plan and going through the certification process. To view our current comprehensive plan, click here.

As the City moves through this process, we will engage with our community for input on the plans for our future.  Please continue to check back periodically for meeting information, survey link and public notice information.
