White Plains NY – October, 2022- The Manursing Island Club, a fixture in the Rye community for more than 100 years, will undergo campus-wide renovations to update its facilities and improve services for its membership. The club has operated since 1912 offering tennis, swimming pool and beach facilities, and a children’s summer camp.
The club, at 1 South Mansursing Island Road, applied to the City of Rye for approval to make a number of changes to upgrade its amenities, which required Site Plan and Wetland Permit approvals from the Rye Planning Commission, as well as several variances from the Board of Appeals.
“We believe this work will provide a much-needed update to the club’s facilities and will promote its continued success for years to come,’’ said Steve Wrabel, Partner with McCullough, Goldberger & Staudt LLP., which represented the club before the Planning Commission and Zoning Board of Appeals.
Tom Cherniavsky, general manager of the the Manursing Island Club, said he was grateful to McCullough, Goldberger & Staudt for guiding the application to a successful conclusion.
“Thanks to the expert handling by Steve Wrabel and McCullough, Goldberger & Staudt, the Manursing Island Club can proceed with these renovations so we can continue to provide top tier services to our members and ensure this campus remains a special place in Rye.’’
Under the approved application, the club can make the following changes:
- Reconfigure outdoor bar and lifeguard/first aid station;
- Create new ADA compliant bathrooms/changing rooms
- Add four pickle ball courts;
- Add a warming hut and expand its viewing deck
- Upgrade children’s camp and seasonal staff housing
- Add new storm water facilities to improve water treatment and protect the Long Island Sound
- Improve ADA accessibility to pool bar, changing rooms and camp building.
