Hanover Township Approves Expansion of JBN Exercise Facility

In the balmy weather before their May 10 meeting, Hanover Township Supervisors could look out the window to see platoons of runners and walkers of all ages, pouring into and out of the nearby Community Center. And if Just Be Natural is granted its wish, there will soon be more room to exercise indoors as well.

Supervisors conducted a Conditional Use Hearing on Richard Bartolacci's application to expand his exercise facility by 3,400 sq. ft at Just Be Natural (JBN), located on 8.2 acres at the northeast intersection of Courtney Street and Highland Avenue. Bartolacci also maintains professional offices and a wholesale warehouse at the site.

According to Van Cleef Engineer Michael Russick, JBN will expand into office space formerly used by a chiropractor without any "structural modification to the physical imprint of the building." He added that a lot of the business comes from other employees in the area.

Supervisors' main concern was parking, but Russick assured them there are 263 available parking spots, and has agreed to meet with Township engineers to ensure that the required parking is established.

A vote on JBN's application will take place on May 24.

In other business, Supervisors unanimously approved an Ordinance that regulate standing and parked vehicles within LVIP IV and Bethlehem Business Park. Although there are "codes and covenants" within the business parks to prohibit parked and standing vehicles, there are no enforcement provisions.

Despite all the evidence of exercise, Supervisor John Nagle claims that the biggest issue among Township voters is when PJ Whelihan's, a popular watering hole, is finally going to open.
