Orthocenter, an orthopedic sports medicine and rehabilitation center, is hoping to expand their current office at 80 Oak Hill Road in Middletown.
Representatives of the Orthocenter applied for a two-story addition to the rear of their current 5,292 square foot building. According to a public notice, the first floor will be used for rehabilitation services while the second floor will be used for offices and examination rooms.
The addition will also include a new elevator, stairwell, administrative offices and a waiting room, according to the notice. There are also plans to improve handicap parking, ADA compliant ramping and sidewalks. Landscaping is also planned to surround the perimeter of the new addition.
The four variances required to move forward with the project generally revolve around the size of the lot and the required setbacks from neighboring property lines. Orthocenter is asking the Middletown Township Planning Board to provide variances for a lot area of 2.309 acres existing where 2.5 acres are required, for a building area of 2.021 acres where 2.5 acres are required, 34.7 feet for a street side yard for a principal structure where 37.5 feet is required and 21.2 feet for a street side yard for accessory emergency generator were 37 feet is required.
The plans are on file in the office of the Middletown Township Planning Board located in Town Hall at One Kings Highway. The public may view the plans during regular business hours, which are 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
The Planning Board will hold a public hearing on the application on Tuesday, Sept. 3 at 7 p.m.
