8 - CAPE GAZETTE - Tuesday, April 15 - Thursday, April 17, 2008 Complex00- Continued from page 1 square-foot building to house two indoor tennis courts, one multi- purpose court, locker rooms and a small retail area. Outside there would be one multi-purpose court and parking for approximately 29 vehicles. Edward O'Brien told the com- missioners the hours would be 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., but the hours could vary according to the sea- son. O'Brien said they plan to pro- vide courts for lessons and train- ing in various sports as well as dance, yoga and exercise classes with a nursery for children of par- ticipants. "There will be no games played here because it's not large enough," he said. The outdoor multipurpose court is 60 feet by 120 feet. O'Brien said there are no plans to light the court for night activities. O'Brien said they envision ten- nis, basketball, volleyball, lacrosse and evenbaseball and golf taking place at the facility. Commissioner Benjamin Gordy questioned the need for a sports facility. "There is a great deal of demand because there is nothing else like this in the area," O'Brien GORDY answered. Many comments centered on traffic and problems of getting onto Route 1 from Old Mill Road. The entrance to the proposed sports complex would be off Old Mill Road, and many residents said it was a bad idea to put more traffic on the road. "What concerns me the most is traffic," said Linell Hearn, who lives in Hidden Oaks at the end of the Old Mill Road. "It's already terrible for us tO get out of there. I've had two accidents there myself. "People coming off Nassau bridge put the pedal to the metal. And in the summer it's bumper to bumper [in the northbound tane] with traffic backed up to Route -. 16. Any extra traffic is going to make it really tough." Michael Carta of Nassau Woods agreed with Heam. "It's horrendous as far as traffic is concerned," he said. "The area is not big enough - there is too much planned in a small area." He said a traffic light is needed at the crossover. John Braggert, who lives on Roberts Road, said many of the people in the area are retirees. "They are not looking for an influx of kids coming in there," he said. "There has been no mention of security- and that's impor- tant." Commission Chairman Robert Wheatley reminded Braggert that while it's obvious young people would come to the facility, O'Brien,s target age is the 50-plus demographic. "There is no way to predict the amount of people that will be there at one time," said Ellen Carta. "They will be parking out on Old Mill Road. It's not a great location and not good access." John Hamer of Nassau Acres had several questions. "How desirable is this building going to look? "How about the sound? "What kind of noise is going to be generated? "How is the traffic flow going to be handled? How many people can be accommodated at one time?" he asked. He did get a few answers. O'Brien estimated the maximum number of people would not exceed 40. O'Brien also acknowledged the problems with pulling out onto Route 1 from Old Mill Road dur- ing heavy traffic times. GREAT WINES THAT DELIVER BIG VALUE He said he would suggest to customers that they turn right and use another crossover to travel south on Route 1. Contact Ron MacArthur at ronm @ capegazette, com.
