OV BOA approves special exception

The Ocean View Board of Adjustment this week unanimously approved a special exception for a physical therapy/rehabilitation facility, to be located at 111 Atlantic Avenue, Unit 3.

Robert Hammond, owner of Atlantic Physical Therapy, told the board that he and his family have six other locations — the closest being in West Fenwick.

The Ocean View location, which would be in a 1,500-square-foot unit, would house one therapist and one receptionist. The hours of their businesses are typically 7 or 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. At any one time, there would be two to three patients at that location, said Hammond.

The board approved the special exception with a vote of 5-0.

The two buildings on the property currently house a financial advisor’s office, café and the Coastal Point offices.
