Pet Care Facilities in Shubenacadie Lakes being considered August 6, 09 at 6pm

There was an ad in the Municipal Notices in yesterday's paper that Harbour East and Marine Drive, Valley & Canal Community Councils "intend to consider and if deemed advisable, approve the following application to - define pet care facilities and permit this land use within the R-6 and R-7 zones subject to specifid site standards"

They're going to have a public hearing at Dartmouth City Hall on August 6th if you live in this area and this is something that interests you - it's a very interesting application, because it doesn't seem to be driven by a business owner's application like Pampered Paws in Hammonds Plains, or the Canine Casbah on the Halifax Peninsula was - it seems to be driven by the HRM planners themselves - to change the Land Use bylaws on princicles alone - you can read the background information on the case at - it's very odd - I'm sure there's more to the story than what is in this document.

    I agree Joan it does seem odd - actually the whole process could be solved by having definitions in the AC300 bylaws that would include commercial dog day care and boarding as well as in home dog day care and boarding.
    Not sure what is going on but intend to ask what is what ... if I hear anything I will let you know.
