Size of Tract is .97 Acres

Current Zoning: NS

ECCA Recommends:  No action subject to the following stipulations:

  • Boarding be limited to dogs only and maximum of 15 dogs under 15 pounds (small dogs)
  • No outdoor runs or kennels
  • Soundproofing installed so animal sounds cannot be heard by the stores in the center.
  • A system will be installed to minimize the odors coming from the premise to the outside of the property and adjacent properties.
  • When the current occupant goes out of business or moves, the property reverts back to NRC
  • The occupant will not expand the footprint of the current building.
  • The occupant will comply with all health department and Cobb County ordinances.

We are also not sure how the 1700 square feet for the building is calculated.  We calculate 1400 square feet of building with a 300 square foot front yard.
