Commercial Swimming Pools

In C3 Districts, the Board of Standards and Appeals may permit commercial swimming pools with a pool area of not more than 5,000 square feet for a term not to exceed five years, provided that the following findings are made:

(a)        that such use is so located as not to impair the essential character or the future use or development of the nearby residential neighborhood; and

(b)        that such pool is not located within 200 feet of the shore line.

The Board may prescribe appropriate conditions and safeguards to minimize adverse effects on the character of the surrounding area, including requirements for shielding of floodlights or adequate screening.
