The Salem Town Board approved the granting of a conditional use permit for the new gymnasium planned for the Trevor School expansion.

The permit is needed because of the gym’s size, said Matthew Wolfert, Bray Architects, which is designing the school’s addition project.

The gym will be able to seat 600 people for a program, Wolfert explained. That should allow for all-school assemblies and special programs.

“There is not a 600-person event taking place every day or even every week,” Wolfert said.

The Town Board unanimously approved the permit.

In the future, the district will be back before the town with two other matters related to the expansion, a variance for the oldest part of the existing building and an overall site plan, Wolfert said.

The expansion was approved in a referendum of district voters last November.
