Dear McDaniel Civic Association Neighbors, 

The majority of you selected June 15 for the Yard Sale in response to my survey. As the Civic Association, the announcement of the yard sale will be advertised in the Newspaper and on the Nextdoor website as an event. The notice has already been posted on Facebook. There will be “yard sale” signs posted all throughout the neighborhood on Monday, June 10. 

Please get ready for a successful yard sale on Saturday, June 15, 2024. The sale will be held between 8:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.

Remember that whoever decides to participate will hold their individual sale in their driveway and/or front yard. Please make sure the roads are not blocked. Please be safe and have a great time.

Thank You,
Ms. Billur Dowse,
President, McDaniel Civic Association

McDonald’s Concord Pike Reconstruction-April 11th Public Meeting

There will be a Public Meeting on Thursday, April 11th at 6:00pm at the Talleyville Fire Company for the public to see plans for the Reconstruction of the McDonald’s Concord Pike location.

The property is located at the southeasterly corner of Prospect Drive and Concord Pike intersection. 

A PLAN is being prepared for submission that includes the current restaurant parcel and the office building parcel, and both will be used for the restaurant.

The restaurant, which will only be slightly more square feet than the existing restaurant, will be situated in a way the owner believes will address the longstanding drive-thru backups on Concord Pike.

This plan will eventually go to the Board of Adjustment for review.

We encourage you to come out to this meeting and hear what is being discussed and ask your questions. If you cannot be there, please send your questions to the McDaniel Civic Association officers via the CONTACT PAGE on the website.

CCOBH Seminar - "Ask the Lawyer: Your Questions about Your Civic or Homeowner Associations Answered"

The Council of Civic Organizations of Brandywine Hundred, Inc. is pleased, once again, to present, “Ask the Lawyer: Your Questions about Your Civic or Homeowner Associations Answered,” a returning entry in its series of seminars for assistance to current board members of Civic Associations and Homeowner Associations in Brandywine Hundred.

Monday, March 11, 2024 at 6:00 p.m.
First Unitarian Church
Concord Pike and Halstead Road

This seminar is intended to provide Civic and Homeowner Association Board members with answers to their most pressing legal issues involving their community association on which they serve as a member of the Board of Directors. This seminar, to be led by CCOBH President, Robert J. Valihura, Jr., Esquire, will cover topics of concern for the community, and can include:

  • Corporate formation and compliance issues
  • intra-board dispute resolution
  • legal issues involving collection of annual dues and fees
  • legal enforceability of restrictive covenants and deed restrictions
  • or any other issue of importance which Board members would like guidance about but have been reluctant to retain a lawyer.

A former State Representative and a current Adjunct Professor of Law teaching the Delaware Corporate law applicable to corporations and Civic and Homeowner Associations, Bob focuses his practice on representation of communities such as yours up and down the state.

IMPORTANT:  The issues which are likely to be covered will focus on what the Board can and cannot do, so please come with a copy of your certificate of incorporation, your bylaws, your community’s deed restrictions and, if applicable, any Declaration that binds your community. Because of CCOBH’s focus on representing civic and homeowner associations, this seminar will not address individual homeowner issues, including disputes that are just between homeowners or homeowner disputes with their homeowner or civic association.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn what you need to know to more effectively and knowledgeably represent your community.   CCOBH hopes to see you on Monday, March 11th at 6:00 p.m. at the First Unitarian Church.

Attention McDaniel Civic Association Residents

WHAT DO WE NEED TO DO TO KEEP OURSELVES, STREETS, AND CARS SAFE

Dear Residents of the McDaniel Civic Association: We are expecting winter weather conditions starting today and this coming week. We are still waiting for an accurate forecast of when the storms will start or how much accumulation we can expect in these ever-changing conditions. 

Therefore, please let’s be prepared for all weather conditions by:

ATTENTION ALL HOMEOWNERS IN MCDANIEL CIVIC ASSOCIATION (McDaniel Crest, McDaniel Heights, & Concord Manor)

UPDATE: REGARDING NEW CASTLE COUNTY PROPERTY REASSESSMENT - INFORMATION AND ADDITIONAL MATERIALS:

Currently, CCOBH (Council of Community Organizations of Brandywine Hundred) is working with NCC to arrange a Public Meeting for the Brandywine Hundred Communities. When arrangements are completed, CCOBH will send out announcements to all member communities.  McDaniel Civic Association is a member community.

New Castle County has contracted with Tyler Technologies to conduct a reassessment project to update property assessments.  Property Owners should be on the lookout for our data collectors, and some of us have already been contacted. Data collectors will be making their way through New Castle County, visiting every property, measuring improvements on the property and collecting data. The data collector may also ask the occupants several questions about the property.  Once the data has been collected, a data mailer will be mailed to the property owner with the information that was collected. Please let the NCC Property Assessment Office know if there is an error or if something was missed. The most accurate information will ensure the most accurate value for the property.
 

For more information, please go to the following site (https://empower.tylertech.com/New-Castle-County-Delaware.html#field) and download the following documents, including the frequently asked questions document.  You will also find additional informational videos and maps to see the reassessment areas.  Please check back with the NCC Assessment Office for updates as the project progresses. Key dates as well as pictures of the Data Collectors will be uploaded to this website. If you have any doubt if a data collector is in your area, please feel free to call your County Assessment Office at 302.395.5520.

Delaware’s three counties have not conducted a property reassessment in decades. New Castle County has contracted with Tyler Technologies to conduct a reassessment project to update property assessments from the base year of 1983, providing an efficient technical process with current, accurate property values.  Tyler Technologies’ data collectors will start working in neighborhoods throughout the 4th District.  (The exact timing is not known yet, see the links below).

The purpose of conducting the reassessment is to remedy a Delaware Chancery Court ruling in 2020 that found property taxing systems in each of the state’s three counties to be unconstitutional and not in compliance with Delaware law.  NCC property reassessment is to address the inequities in Delaware’s property tax system and ensure that each property owner pays only their fair share of the tax burden; no more and no less. 

Property Owners should be on the lookout for the data collectors. They will be making their way through New Castle County, visiting every property, measuring improvements on the property and collecting data. These data collectors will complete an exterior inspection and ask property owners basic questions about the interior, such as what type of heating and cooling system is in the home. If a data collector stops by when you are not home, they will leave you a questionnaire. Once data collection is complete on your property, you will receive a mailer outlining the characteristics of your home.   

To learn more about the New Castle County property reassessment process visit the following link:  https://empower.tylertech.com/New-Castle-County-Delaware.html#field  Key dates as well as pictures of the Data Collectors will be uploaded to this website. If you have any doubt about whether a data collector is in your area, please feel free to call your County Assessment Office at 302.395.5520.

Once the data has been collected, a data mailer will be mailed to the property owner with the information that was collected. NCC is asking homeowners to notify them immediately if there is an error or if something was missed in the assessment. The most accurate information will ensure the most accurate value for the property.

After all the data is collected and data mailers have been returned and reviewed, Tyler Technologies will begin analyzing the data. 

You can find more information at the following link which contains the frequently asked questions document compiled by Tyler Technologies.  Please check back for updates as the project progresses. https://empower.tylertech.com/rs/015-NUU-525/images/New-Castle-FAQ.pdf

About Us

McDaniel is a residential neighborhood located in the Brandywine Hundred area of North Wilmington.
 
Many of these early homes were built pre-WWII. Several were genuine “Sears Homes” from home kit plans. Development rapidly grew in the 1950’s in this post-World War II neighborhood.
 
McDaniel now consists of almost 800 single-family homes and 20 apartments in McDaniel Crest, McDaniel Heights and Concord Manor.
 
The homes are of various designs due to the way the neighborhood was developed over the years.
 
The McDaniel Civic Association (MCA) meets at least once a year to discuss neighborhood concerns and vote in the board of directors and officers. McDaniel sends out newsletters to inform neighbors on current issues as well as collect dues.
 
If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to reach the McDaniel Civic Association Board by sending email to president@mcdanielcivicassociation.org
