  • Resident raising money for Arts Commission-endorsed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles marker

    posted on 3/24/2023

    Dover resident James Lane is raising money to create a permanent commemorative marker that honors the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) birthplace, with original custom artwork donated by co-creator Kevin Eastman.

    Co-creators Eastman and Peter Laird lived at 28 Union St. in Dover, where they founded Mirage Studios and created the popular ninja turtle comic in 1983. The project, endorsed by the Dover Arts Commission, would install a specialized maintenance hole cover on the sidewalk near where Eastman and Laird’s house once stood, as it has since been demolished.

    “As a lifelong TMNT fan who lives in the neighborhood, I’d often walk my dogs past the spot and think about how it deserves recognition,” Lane writes in his pitch on the Indieogogo fundraising website. “In November 2020, I came up with this project idea and decided I could make it happen. Since then, I have been working with various municipal committees and departments, researching vendors and manufacturing processes, and developing a strategy. To my great joy, original creator Kevin Eastman has offered to donate new custom artwork!”

    Lane’s original vision was to utilize a maintenance hole on the street in front of where 28 Union St. stood; however, he has agreed with the city’s safety suggestion for installing the unique marker on the sidewalk instead.

    Lane’s fundraiser is not through the City of Dover. Instead, he will raise money and donate it to the city for the TNMT commemorative marker. Lane estimates the total cost is $13,000. All funds raised beyond the expenses directly related to this project will be donated to the following turtle-related registered nonprofits:...more

  • Site clearing begins for new water storage tank

    posted on 3/22/2023

    The contractor building the new water storage tank on Smith Well Road began site work on Monday, March 20, which includes clearing of trees and preparing the site for construction.

    Initial work will occur via the Webb Place entrance to the project. As the project develops in the coming weeks, work will also happen on Smith Well Road. Part of the project will be the reconstruction of Smith Well Road, including replacing the water main, sewer and drainage lines. Residents will receive advanced notice when work on Smith Well Road begins.

    The new water storage tank adds redundancy to the water system. It will also allow for the needed rehabilitation of the Garrison Hill water tank in the next couple of years.
