Twisters receives site plan approval from Commission

BERLIN—The town Planning Commission, during its Oct. 9 meeting approved the final site plan for property located on Old Ocean City Boulevard that had been submitted by the owner of Twisters Gymnastics Academy, Planning Director David Engelhart said in an Oct. 15 interview.
The site plan, submitted by owner Carmella Solito included cosmetic changes and the construction of a new building that will eventually expand to a 52,000 square foot athletic and recreational facility on the new property. During an earlier interview she explained as the new site is developed, new amenities would be added to the company’s existing site at 9028 Worcester Hwy. and at some point in the future the two locations would be merged into a recreation facility with attractions from a learning center for toddlers, activities for teenagers, such as glow golf, laser tag, and trampoline with a par core; and a fitness facility of adults. The proposed facility would feature key-card access to each facet of activities, she added.
With the site plan approved, Engelhart said Solito will now be able to begin the process to obtain stormwater and wastewater permits, electrical and water connections, and submit building plans.
