WRDE video: Dewey board upholds rebuilding decision on Ed’s Chicken and Crabs


Dewey Beach’s Board of Adjustment upheld the town’s decision Monday night to deny the application for Ed’s Chicken and Crabs to rebuild as a nonconforming establishment.

Owners of the property had argued that the site was grandfathered in as a nonconforming use. The site can be rebuilt under current codes.

In 2016, the Dewey summer favorite burned down in a fire that occurred when a car ran into the building in the coastal community and set the building ablaze.
