Representative: Mildred Tallant

Mr. DePablo introduced the petition. It is recommended that the Planning and Zoning Commission approve the petitioner’s request for a Special Exception Use Permit for a Home Occupation, namely for Dog Grooming, with the following performance conditions:

1. The petitioner must obtain all permits from Hernando County and other applicable agencies and meet all applicable land development regulations, for either construction or use of the property, and complete all applicable development review processes.

2. The home occupation shall not exceed ten percent (10%) of the total floor area of the dwelling.

3. The hours of operation shall be limited to 9:00AM to 5:00PM five days per week (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday).

4. No overnight kenneling of dogs shall be permitted.

5. All parking shall be controlled on site. There shall be no on street or off-site parking permitted.

Mildred Tallant, representing the petition, under oath, asked for approval of the very limited dog grooming operation to supplement her income. She agreed with the staff recommendations.

Under public comment Michael Holmes and James Walsh, under oath, explained that they live two and three houses away from the site and had no problems with the facility.

Ms. Tallant advised the Commission that she has groomed the neighborhood dogs for the past two years.

Motion: A motion was made to approve the Special Exception Use Permit per staff recommendations.
