The November 2014 Register of Regulations included proposed guidelines relating to the administration and review of applications for designation as Downtown Development Districts (the "Guidelines"). See 18 DE Reg. 359 (11/01/14) (Prop.). As set forth in the Guidelines, public comments were accepted through November 30, 2014.
