Zoning Board Approves New Home, Home Addition and Soccer Centers ‘Bubble’

Applications for a home addition, a new “bubble” for a township soccer center and a new home were approved at the July 17 Zoning Board of Adjustment meeting.

Amwell Road resident Daniel Cook told the board that he needed to enlarge his home. The plan is to build a master bedroom suite, enlarge the kitchen and build a 0ne-car garage.

The application for a new home at 42 William Street was brought to the board by Mike Abramovitz, president of CAAM Development Group. He told the board that he wanted to build a two-story, three-bedroom single-family home that would not have a basement. A planned attic would only be for storage and utilities, he said.

Representatives from Soccer Centers on Memorial Drive told the board that they needed a variance from the township’s rules on building height to erect a new “bubble” on their building.

The current bubble – a structure suspended by air – was built in 2000, and only has a 14-year life span, the company;s attorney Peter Lanfrit, said.

Frank Cull, director of operations for Soccer Centers, said the new, taller bubble is needed to reduce the danger of a collapse after a heavy snowfall.

Snow slides off the taller bubble better than the current height, he said.

The current bubble is already “dimpled” due to snow buildup, he said.

The board approved all three applications.
