Locals in the area I'm mentioning have talked about southern New Castle County (south of the Chesapeake & Delaware Canal) becoming its own county, although there has been no formal proposal legislatively. The thinking of the people with this idea down there, mentioned usually in frustration, is that the northern part of the county, north of the canal but especially north of Route 40, is the focus of the county. The county seat would likely be Middletown, which is quickly moving up the list of Delaware's most populated municipalities. Middletown is already the economic hub of southern New Castle County, and parts of northern Kent County.
