Application-#2007-06 - White Sands Hotel, 1106 Ocean Avenue, Block 29.01; Lot 1; Applicant previously was approved for an 870 square foot permanent retractable pool enclosure.

A-3 Cover Sheet A-4 Rendering of pool enclosure; Site, A-5 Site plan (floor plan) showing existing pool, brick pavers and common walk ways. A-6; Cross section of proposed enclosure A-7, A-8, A-9 – photographs. Panels will not cover walk way; the roof will but not the panels. Roof consists of vinyl covering (outside), inside (cloth). Massimo Yezzi, Jr., Licensed architect and Planner, credentials accepted; stated that the original pool enclosure had a more rigid frame. This enclosure will have a canvas roof and be more in harmony with the shore community. It is a framed system with removable side wall panels. Prior approval just covered pool area; this encompasses entire are. Existing patio decks will not have an enclosure; only area being covered is already an impervious area. Mr. Leonard inquired if this wasn’t a permanent structure with all the sides and the roof? Robert Shea (yes) Massimo Yezzi stated that this will enhance the site by allowing the patrons to enjoy the outdoor facilities over a longer period of time. Wall panels will be removed from November through March. Mr. Wolfersberger inquired if the pool will still be a catch basin? (no) Drainage will be reviewed by the Board Engineer. Massimiliano Laurea, with Litra Systems, USA stated that 1/3 of area will be covered at all times. Receptions will not be held under enclosure; strictly for pool use. Proposed pool cover will come within 4-feet of the back walkway. Original pool enclosure was 1665 square feet; new enclosure proposed is 3,956 square feet. Mr. Reilly inquired how this 1/3 of the enclosure which will remain all year long will hold up to high winds. (Enclosure has been tested to with stand 135 mph winds)

No audience questions or statements


Mr. Wolfersberger – I think the design is better than the last one, however I would be hard pressed because I voted against it last time and there is nothing really that would change my position.

Mr. Simon – I would be in favor. After that week in August I can sympathize with his patrons. It is not over 13 feet high and it would enhance the patrons stay. It would be a good addition to his facility.

Mr. Reynolds – I also like it. It has a nostalgic look to me and I like that the people have somewhere to go in inclement weather. I would like the stipulation that the roof be retracted at 11pm.

Mr. Leonard – I also think it looks better than the last one. There are a couple of times that we have granted variances that keep encroaching. I would not be in favor of the proposal.

Mr. Reilly – Like Mr. Wolfersberger I am very concerned about the numbers, but after looking at the proposal and the use I do not see the harm. It would clearly benefit the people.

1. There will be no activities under the pool enclosure when the pool is not in use.

2. The applicant shall utilize materials as shown to the Board at the time of the hearing on September 6, 2007, and any substitution will require the Board’s approval.

3. The drainage plan is to be reviewed and approved by the Board’s Engineer.

4. This resolution supersedes Resolution 2005-06 and will control regarding the pool enclosure and the use of this element of the hotel.

5. The panels will be located on no more than three sides at any time, and the walls will be removed altogether during the months of December through March.

6. After 11 p.m. at night, the roof of pool enclosure is to be retracted.

7. The applicant must submit to CAFRA and seek approval.
