A legal challenge is delaying the construction of a marina with space for 24 boats on the Little Assawoman Bay near the Maryland-Delaware state line.

In January, the Lighthouse View Condominium Association received permission from the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control to build docks; however, that decision was appealed to the Delaware Environmental Appeals Board, Delmarvanow.com reported.

Members of the condo association say the marina will improve recreational opportunities and increase property values. The marina's critics, who include members of the Lighthouse Cove Mobile Home Park and several Fenwick Island council members, argue that the additional slips will overcrowd the channel and create safety problems, among other issues.

The hearing date for the appeal is set for July 26 in Dover.
