The Newtown Township Board of Supervisors on Wednesday approved plans for the Newtown Athletic Club to construct a new field house and outdoor pool complex.
The field house will take the place of the Baseball Academy that is adjacent to and owned by the club. A turf field the size of a regulation football field will be added next to the field house, the NAC told Patch last year.
The resort-style pool complex, which the club hopes to debut in the summer of 2013, will have features like sprays, slides and various elements. There will also be an adult pool and lounge area.
NAC owner Jim Worthington told the supervisors at a previous meeting that all members will have access to the pools and no summer-only memberships will be sold.
There was little discussion Wednesday, as the matter has been previously reviewed at other supervisors meetings and by the township's Planning Commission.
