Hudson -- The Country Club of Hudson's plan for additional amenities earned a round of thumbs up from the city's planning commission Feb. 10.
Plans for a detached 580-square-foot food and bar service cabana building and a 200-square-foot service galley addition to the main clubhouse were approved unanimously by the commission.
Prior to the vote, commission member Rob Kagler expressed concern for nearby residents with regard to noise levels and outdoor loudspeakers.
"There are no outdoor sound systems proposed," architect Michael Fant said.
Country club board of trustees member and chairman of renovations Bill Foley said there would probably be events outside but that the club had done a good job historically of being a good neighbor.
Jim Phipps of Fairway Boulevard agreed with Foley's assessment.
"They're good neighbors, however, I am getting older and I am going to be going to bed earlier," Phipps said. "My concerns are bands and things like that. It has been controlled well to this point."
Kagler attempted to add a condition to the project approval that would limit bands playing to midnight but a majority of the panel disagreed, stating city ordinances regarding noise were sufficient.
Kagler removed the noise condition and the project plan was approved.
Commission officers retain positions
In other action, the commission voted to retain commission chairman Joe Mulligan and vice chairman Jennifer Barone for another year.
Two new commission members, Mike Chuparkhoff and Greg Anglewicz, were sworn in to serve. They took seats vacated by Michael Dostal and Bob Drew.
