After nearly two years of trying, Clear Space Theatre Company has received approval to build its new home on Rehoboth Avenue.
During a Friday, Aug. 14 meeting, the Rehoboth Beach Planning Commission approved the site plan for the theater company’s new home at 413, 415 and 417 Rehoboth Ave.
The planning commission held two public hearings. The first hearing was for Clear Space Theatre, a 256-seat traditional theater, at 415 Rehoboth Ave. The site plan for this building passed by a 7-2 vote. The second hearing was for Rehoboth Spotlight, a rehearsal theater, at 417 Rehoboth Ave. The site plan for this building also passed by a 7-2 vote.
The votes went the same in both cases. Chair Rick Perry and Commissioners Jeffrey Trunzo, Lee Weber, Rachel Macha, Barry Covington, Mark Hunker and Stephen Kaufman voted in favor. Commissioners Michael Strange and Joyce Lussier voted against.
