Since the plans completion, New Castle County and DelDOT have been working to implement the plan as described below.

Hometown Overlay & Design Guidelines
New Castle County’s Hometown Overlay Ordinance provides historic communities, like Centreville, with the ability to modify modern zoning standards to preserve community character. Centreville and New Castle County are currently drafting a hometown overlay district and design guidelines. The draft guidelines for Centreville seek to maintain and conserve its historic village character, strengthen the quality of life in and around the Village, improve shopping, dining, working and living experiences, and beautify the Village.
