Millsboro is a very small town, with a bunch of amazing stores and restaurants! It makes me feel very safe and comforts most people whenever they visit Delaware. We have different play parks for kids and for pets as well. I would like to see people gather around and start collections or donations. People could help out those in need just by starting a donation. Another thing I would like to see is helping clean up our community and trying to recycle more to avoid hurting the Earth.

I live on the outskirts of Millsboro, a place they call Ling Neck. Most people are very nice to each other and very quick to lend a hand helping with something if they are able. The people here support local small businesses and many of them are small business owners themselves. Something that I’d love to see change is that the planning commission would stop approving all of the new huge housing developments that are popping up. We already seem to be over populated. Our schools don’t have enough room, our roads don’t have enough room and we don’t have enough doctors.
Millsboro is a rundown town in Southern Delaware. With that being said, there are better southern Delaware options than Millsboro.
