RYE — After a long debate, Executive Council has approved the new Jenness Beach Bathhouse.

READ: Jenness Beach Bathhouse redevelopment called a 'safety hazard' by petitioners

A petition had originally been created by Ryan McGill of Rye, who encouraged project officials to further review this renovation project as some of the changes could cause several safety concerns for beach-goers and pedestrians.

The major safety concern listed in the petition had to do with the scale of the project. The project would take away the only sidewalk in the Jenness Beach State Park in order to save the parking spots that would have been lost by the renovated bath house, McGill said.

The bike path on the shoulder of Route 1A was also at risk of being shrunk in order to accommodate the redevelopment project, according to McGill.

Executive council approved this renovation during a Wednesday meeting.
