There are 2 upcoming sessions with the Planning division for 2 separate in home doggy day cares coming up that those of us/you in the interested dog world might want to take note of -
Wendy Gillespie at Pampered Paws out in Hammond's Plains has been going through the same process that Janet Chernin has - she has also been deemed to be operating an illegal in home doggy day care - just like many many other people are doing throughout the HRM currently, so she's also going through the development agreement process - and on April 23rd, they're having a public meeting to go through the process with the public. Below is the proposal fact sheet.
May 8th, 2008 is the next step for Janet Chernin's Canine Casbah - another public hearing. This one is at City Hall, sounds auspicious. This is only I think - the 3rd of 4th public hearing for this process - I think they will have given pretty much the whole of the HRM time to give their opinion by the time this thing is over.
