Application will likely be heard by zoning board in April
An indoor miniature golf course could be coming to Eatontown if the borough zoning board approves an application made by GloGolf Entertainment LLC in the coming months. The applicant is proposing to build Monster Mini Golf, a full-scale indoor, 18-hole, monster-themed miniature golf course at 749 Hope Road in the borough. The course would be illuminated by UV lightning and be used primarily for birthday parties and would also feature amusement-style games. A miniature golf course is not a permitted use in the borough's PBO-88 zone, so a variance will have to be granted by Eatonown Zoning Board of Adjustment. A PBO-88 zone permits professional office buildings. Residents in the area were noticed of the upcoming application, which the …

Application to build on former site of Circle Trailer Park on Route 35 will be heard by Eatontown Planing Board soon
A proposed plan to build a Wawa and strip mall on the site of the vacant Circle Trailer Park in Eatontown will be coming before the borough planning board in the near future.

Eatontown Mayor Gerald Tarantolo said developer's application includes a plan to build a Wawa convenience store and a strip mall that includes a bank and Chick-fil-A and bank. A plan to build a Wawa and gas station was originally proposed for the former site of the Eatontown Roller Rink, but was shot down by the planning board several years ago.

Eatontown fitness studio caters to women, inside and out.
"Women don't take care of themselves," says Pamela Caputo, owner of a new fitness studio in Eatontown that caters to women. Often, women put themselves at the bottom of their to-do lists, tending to children and family obligations and ignoring their own needs, she adds. "Where do we fit ourselves in?" asks Caputo. "We deserve some time." Fittingly, Caputo's new studio is called I Deserve: A Fitness Studio for Women and is right off of Route 35 at 30 Lewis St. Caputo opened the studio at the beginning of December and already, it's becoming a gathering place for local women to focus on total well-being. "There's a passion that develops when women work out together," Caputo tells Patch when we stopped by last week. "It goes beyond the …

Tell us what you would like to see on the property
Driving along Route 35 in Eatontown, it's hard not to notice the big, Vegas-style sign for the Sands Motor Lodge. But upon closer inspection, the motel sitting on a little more than four acres on the north side of the highway, with listing fencing and outdated buidlings, has seen better days. The property was at the top of Eatontown Economic Development Advisory Committee's Feb. 3 agenda, as members discussed a possible conversion of the site into a gas station and convenience store. The idea for the switch, which would require rezoning of the property, was brought to the committee's attention by the property owner, who would like to sell the site. "It's the perfect location for that type of use," said Colleen McGurk, Eatontown's zoning …

Members of the Eatontown Economic Advisory Committe toured the headquarters for Computer Data Source on Industrial Way
They look a lot like the stalls at the new Sonic fast food restaurant down the road, but the carports in the parking lots at Computer Data Source in Eatontown are producing a lot more than hamburgers. The Industrial Way West business installed a solar carport and separate solar canopy in the back of the buiding, which along with almost 1,500 panels covering the business's roof, produce about 60 percent of the power consumed by CDS, according to its founder and president, Ronald J. Wollner. Patch tagged along as members of the Eatontown Economic Advisory Committee toured the company, which provides alternative IT support, prior to their meeting there on Feb. 3. The group stopped for a photo op by the 19-foot by 300-foot solar carport that …
