BRICK TOWNSHIP — The Brick Township Planning Board has approved an application for the location of a City MD urgent care facility at State Routes 70 and 88, replacing the previously located Windmill and 7-11.
The application, approved by the board on June 9, was filed by Summit Health Management on behalf of City MD. The facility is to occupy 5,466 square feet of recently vacated commercial space and includes 12 examination rooms, according to William Lane, an engineer who is represented by applicants.
Tara Paxton, Municipal Town Planner presents a letter to the panel with inquiries pertaining to the new City MD facility. Paraphrasing her letter, Ms. Paxton asks if there will be any changes to the cross-action easement ,which essentially addresses the pedestrian traffic in terms of ingress and egress. The representing attorney maintains that, “There is no huge delivery traffic in this location that would be abnormal to the strip malls usual traffic,” and that once open, the urgent care facility will be equipped to provide health services to from six to ten patients per hour, numbers far less disruptive than the previous traffic circulation for the Windmill, and 7-11 stores.
The urgent care center will operate between the hours of 8 a.m and 8 p.m. opening three hours earlier than one of its former occupants, Windmill and in contrast not operating overnight as 7-11 previously did.
According to information provided during the planning board hearing, the new City MD will become one of four urgent care providers on the adjoining highways and eight throughout Brick Township.
