About our team
The Open Space Alliance is a Greater Lewes Foundation fund chaired by one of Lewe’s finest leaders, former Mayor James L. Ford III, and works in partnership with the Sussex County Land Trust.
Other members of the GLF Board are also involved, including Rob Gibbs, a leading Sussex County land use attorney, and John Schroeder, who chairs Delaware’s Open Space Council. GLF Project Manager, Mark Chura, also directs the Sussex County Land Trust.
Our campaign manager, Pam Costanzi brings 30-plus years of fundraising experience to the team. As a Lewes resident, she also has a personal commitment to ensure our open spaces are protected from future development.
