The local Zoning Board greenlit the project for the Middletown, N.J., club, which will build a two-story maintenance facility to house equipment and student interns.
Navesink Country Club will replace its existing maintenance building with a new facility after the Middletown Zoning Board approved the proposal, the Middletown Patch reported.
The new two-story maintenance facility at the Middletown, N.J., club will house country club equipment and student interns. It is expected to be completed next year by Dynamic Engineering Consultants.
When reviewing the proposal, the board expressed concern over the employee parking lot adjacent to the building, which has 16 stacked spaces. With 28 full-time employees, that amounts to half a stall for each employee, Middletown Patch reported.
Interns will park at the clubhouse and live in the second floor of the new facility. Student interns live on campus for six months at most and internships occur on a rotating basis.
Gregory Vella, attorney for the Middletown Zoning Board of Adjustment, said the board approved a waiver to the d3 variance, allowing for parking within 500 feet of the road and allowed for design waivers with living restrictions limiting the housing to interns that are attending some sort of academic institution, Middletown Patch reported.
The club will also add a fence on the south side of the stacked parking spaces, additional outdoor lighting and draining easements.
A major clubhouse renovation and expansion at Navesink CC was featured in C&RB’s August 2010 issue (“Navesink CC’s $10 Million Clubhouse Renovation and Expansion“).
