Chatham tennis camp plan revived

Vince Pecoraro is reporting in the Chatham Courier the Life Serve Youth Foundation’s efforts to open a youth summer tennis camp at 206 Thomas Road in Chatham have been rekindled. In a letter dated March 10 sent to the Chatham Town Clerk by the attorney representing the foundation, the foundation requested a hardship waiver under Local Law Number 1 of 2015. An application to the Zoning Board of Appeals for a special use permit by foundation founder and president Adam Stone to create the camp appears to have triggered passage of the law, which imposed a 12-month moratorium on special use permits for land along dirt roads. The town board must now hold a public hearing on the request. Following the hearing, the board has 15 days to make a decision. Pecoraro reported a representative of the Thomas Road Conservation Alliance, the group of neighbors opposed to the project, was not available for comment. Read the full story in the Chatham Courier.
