Historic Preservation Commission Signs Off On Rutgers Prep Pavilion

Historic Preservation Advisory Commission member Bob LaCorte asks a question about the proposed pavilion at Rutgers Prep.

A plan by Rutgers Preparatory School to build a pavilion on its Easton Avenue campus got the blessing of the township Historic Preservation Advisory Commission June 5.

The pavilion would include two bathrooms and a space to sell refreshments, said Peter Richardson, the school’s director of operations.

The pavilion would be located near the school’s turf field, close to the Delaware & Raritan canal, and would only be used in warm weather.

“We don’t do anything on the fields in the winter,” he said.

The pavilion would be “nothing fancy, nothing big,” he said. He said the only facility in that area now is a porta-potty.

There would also be a small covered are for gatherings, or shelter from storms, he said.

Any building activity that occurs with 1,000 feet of the D&R Canal must be reviewed by the commission.
