Permit allows dog training facility on Lexington Road

The Board of Adjustment (BOA) approved a conditional-use permit on Monday that allows a property owner to continue operating a kennel/dog training facility on Lexington Road.

No one spoke in opposition to Philip Gerrow’s request to operate his business at 2365 Lexington Road, located in the A-1 (agriculture) district.

The BOA’s unanimous approval includes specific conditions on business operations. Dogs must be leashed or put in a fenced-in area when training occurs, and all dog waste must be removed by a waste management company for proper disposal.

Variances approved

The BOA unanimously approved variances for two other property owners.

Tressa Wilson was granted a 20-foot rear-yard setback variance for her residence at 1006 Scotts Way. The residence did not meet a minimum setback requirement of 150-feet in the rural residential district when constructed in 2003, which was before Wilson purchased the home.

A 10-foot variance allows Edgar Saborit to build a two unit, single-family townhouse on a 50-foot-wide lot at 103 Mack Street. Other homes on Mack Street are also on 50-foot-wide lots, according to information given to BOA members.


A request for a dimensional variance at 5799 Midway Road (Antony C. Bays), A-1 district, was postponed until January.
