Warren Code Enforcement Officer Stan Waltz has confirmed that the planning board gave its final blessing to WSF LLC's indoor sports complex May 2.

The 33-foot tall steel building, which will be erected on Route 90 across from Grant's tree farm, has a projected cost of $2.5 million.

Hope developer Rick Bresnahan is still awaiting approval by the Department of Environmental Protection and State Fire Marshal's office.

The Pitch, as the facility is named, will service local soccer, field hockey, lacrosse and baseball teams. The next closest indoor facility is in Waterville.

The 68,800-square-foot facility is still awaiting state fire marshal approval. Occupancy limits are still being discussed.

Architect John Hansen and engineer William Gartley unveiled drawings of the proposed building at the planning board's March 7 meeting. The heaviest use of the facility is expected to be on the weekends, according to Gartley.

The plan includes 157 parking spaces, which will obviously limit attendance to any one event.

Also approved was a three-lot subdivision along Beechwood Street and Peterboro Road. Landowners Thomas and Jill Harriman plan on dividing up the three lots and selling them individually. Each lot will have its own driveway access to a main road.

Known as The Hutchins Subdivision, four lots were initially proposed, according to Waltz, then the owners decided to make the lots bigger.
