Pending approval from the local zoning commission, the Wilton, Conn., club hopes to use a building on its property to house eight visiting sports and hospitality staff at a time.
After withdrawing its previous application, Rolling Hills Country Club in Wilton, Conn., is seeking approval from the Wilton Planning and Zoning Commission to house visiting sports and hospitality staff in a house on its property, the Wilton Daily Voice reported.
The previous application was withdrawn amid concerns over traffic and the number of people who would be permitted to stay in the house at one time. While the initial application sought to allow 12 people in the residence, the new application sets the number at eight, the Voice reported.
“The (last] application was withdrawn because it wasn’t going to pass. We wanted it to pass,” Mike Catanzaro, Rolling Hills’ General Manager, told the Voice. “We want to see if we can get to some number that the town can agree to.”
Other clubs in the area also house training club staff on site, Catanzaro said.
“We don’t have the program right now. We would proceed with it, but we need the housing,” he added.
Pending approval by the commission, the town’s building department and fire department would also have to approve the building to determine if it is compliant with safety and building codes, the Voice reported.
