To establish a dog kennel facility to house, train, and care for service dogs, within a new 3,000± square-foot building on a 2.23± acre parcel in the General Agriculture (A-2-10) zoning district. The applicant proposes to construct a 3,000± square-foot building, which will consist of a 1,300± square-foot kennel area, and 1,700± square-foot training area including a full bathroom for employees. The dogs will be offsite during the summer months from April to August inspecting boats for invasive mussels at lakes and reservoirs; during these months, the dogs will live off-site with their handlers. The applicant anticipates only six dogs, to be at the project site from Monday-Thursday during the summer months. During the months of September to March, a total of up to 15 dogs will remain at the kennel. The property owner will be the primary caretaker and trainer for the dogs while at the kennel. The kennel has a maximum capacity of up to 25 dogs; however, the applicant does not anticipate the kennel to reach maximum capacity. Up to a maximum of five additional handlers are anticipated on-site once a year. A 6-foot-high chain-link fence will enclose the building along the southern portion of the building to accommodate outdoor exercise space for the dogs. Additionally, a 6-foot-high wood fence is proposed to be constructed around a portion of the parcel’s perimeter, excluding a 20-foot-wide easement belonging to OID, located at the southern parcel line of the property. The applicant has requested the proposed wood fence as an alternative from the County’s Agricultural Buffer requirements on the rear and northeast portion of the project site. An additional septic system is proposed to be developed to service the new restroom within the animal care facilities. Solid waste from the dogs will be picked up and placed in trash receptacles. The project site is currently developed with a single-family dwelling and two storage buildings. The existing storage buildings will not be used as part of the kennel operation. Additionally, the applicant proposes to extend the existing 20± foot wide gravel driveway to allow for emergency vehicle access to the proposed kennel building. The site is served by private well and septic system, and fronts County-maintained Hinds Road.
