Litchfield Athletic Club co-owner Alan Landau appeared before the Planning and Zoning Commission on Monday to discuss the outdoor exercise area built at the club without zoning approval.
 
Landau, accompanied by engineer Dennis McMorrow of Berkshire Engineering and Surveying in Bantam, told the commission he was under the assumption that a previous approval for an addition at the athletic club allowed him to build the exercise area.
 
Not so, according to the commission, because the previous approval didn't cover outdoor exercise. Landau therefore will have to seek the commission's approval for the exercise facility, even though it has been built.
 
A public hearing on the matter will be held Sept. 15.
