PLANNING COMMISSION: Beach Club Gets Building Permit

Cape Charles Wave

October 3, 2012

Two large construction projects are on the drawing board in Cape Charles, with one of them nearly underway.

Bay Creek Resort received a building permit yesterday authorizing construction to begin on the Beach Club and Fitness Center at Bayside Village in the Bay Creek golf course complex.

The members-only facility will include a 3,000 square-foot member lounge, cardio area with exercise equipment, indoor and outdoor pools, snack bar, and children’s game room.

Bay Creek spokesman Oral Lambert told the Wave last month he expects construction to take about eight months.

The other project is even more ambitious but still in the early planning stages: Eastville-based South Port Investors LLC envisions a Cape Charles Yacht Center, with yacht repair, manufacturing, and sales.

Cape Charles Town Planner Tom Bonadeo reported to the Planning Commission last night that South Port has submitted plans for permit updates, including wetlands mitigation.

The plans must be approved by the Northampton County Wetlands Board and others. South Port hopes to begin work this fall along the wetlands near the harbor, Bonadeo said. [Read more…]
