Water Mains Project to Begin May 2021

Date Posted: Wednesday, April 21st, 2021

UPDATE: Due to nation-wide shortages of certain construction materials, the start date for this project has been delayed till the beginning of June 2021.    The Town of Magnolia has received grant funding in the amount of $1.1 million from the DE Division of Public Health for upgrades to several sections of our primary water mains on Main Street and Walnut Street during Calendar Year 2021. Construction activities in support of these upgrades will be starting up in early May 2021 and run through October 2021 and will affect select water main sections on all four primary streets at some point during the project.   It’s unlikely that the contractor, Reybold, will impact all four streets at once, but there will be a period of time where sections of water main on each street will be affected. You may experience traffic congestion and/or water service interruption at various times.   […]

Date Posted: Friday, June 12th, 2020

The Town of Magnolia is pleased to announce the completion of its Magnolia Traffic Study. The majority of the funding for the project was provided by the Dover/Kent County MPO (Metropolitan Planning Organization) with the remainder provided by the Town. The study was produced by the consulting firm Whitman, Requardt and Associates of Wilmington and led by consultants Adrienne Eiss and Jeff Reigner. The consultants kicked off the project by interviewing Mayor James Frazier (for general background on traffic issues, related information contained in our 2019 Town Comprehensive Plan and residents’ sentiments about traffic), and Councilman Buck Dougherty, who focused his responses on how traffic issues have impacted his fire crews at the Magnolia Volunteer Fire Company in his role as former Fire Chief and present member of their Board of Directors. WRA then spent many hours researching and compiling available traffic data on Magnolia and the surrounding area (e.g. […]


Magnolia Joins National Flood Insurance Program

Date Posted: Friday, May 18th, 2018

The Town received notice from FEMA that, effective April 5, 2018, its application to join the National Flood Insurance Program was approved. This means that town residents who desire to purchase flood insurance may do so through insurance agents or brokers licensed to do business in the State of Delaware. Per FEMA documentation, the Town of Magnolia is not located in a flood plain, but residents wishing to purchase the insurance may still do so. There is a 30-day waiting period after your date of purchase for the policy to become effective. Additional information, such as our notification letter and the FEMA Policy Issuance can be found under the Town’s website dropdown link entitled National Flood Insurance Program.
