Vince Pecoraro is reporting in the Chatham Courier PS21, the Chatham-based performing arts venue, was before that town's Zoning Board of Appeals Mon., Mar. 30, with plans to create a new permanent facility. The non-profit intends to construct a 14,500-square-foot black box theater with removable walls and doors that will transform the structure into a pavilion for use during the summer months. The black box would hold 100 patrons, and an additional 200 people could be accommodated when it is open. The building would be located north of the saddlespan tent, which has been in use since 2006. The tent will no longer be used once the building has been completed. With a newly designed sound system, the new structure would reduce the amount of noise neighbors hear while the venue is in use, according to Nicholas Vamvas of Crawford Engineering. Some neighbors of PS21 were present at the meeting and said noise was still a concern, especially because the new structure will be open air during the summertime. Supporters were also in attendance and expressed their approval of the facility. The board has 62 days to render a decision on the request for a special use permit.
