Middletown P&Z Approves In-Ground Pool 2nd Phase Outdoor Improvements

IMG_0548

 

 UPDATE:  Most people we talked to said they prefer to swim in outdoor pools during the summer.  We checked and apparently we’re not open in the summer.  Since there doesn’t seem to be as much interest in an outdoor skating rink, we’ve decided NOT to put in a pool.  (I’ll save my “HOFF” costume for another time.)

Middletown planning and zoning approved the next phase for WesWings outside improvements.  As many of you know, last summer’s patio installation was the first phase of our overall outside renovation.  Last night’s meeting was one of the final hurdles we had to overcome to begin the installation of the in-ground pool.  Unfortunately, plans for the outdoor stage area were rejected due to concerns over loud noise disturbing area residents.  Along with additional landscaping, we will finally have the outdoor pool that Wesleyan has been lacking.

Of course none of this would have been possible without our generous contributors to our Kickstarter campaign.

While most people chose the $25 level – breakfast pail served while floating on a tube, seven people did buy the $500 level – name plated chaise lounge chair (reservation not incl.)  There were no takers for the $2,500 level where you could have a bucket of wings (or seitan) served poolside by Ed or Karen in their Baywatch lifeguard gear.

So be sure to join us poolside next fall for our grand opening!
