[ARCHIVED] When is a kennel not a kennel?

Today’s plush doggie spa is not your grandfather’s kennel, so it shouldn’t be treated like one. At its May 26 meeting, Cranberry’s Board of Supervisors heard public comments on how changes in the ways kennels operate should impact their placement. It also authorized advertising those revised rules, essentially putting them into effect as of that date. Instead of old-style, largely outdoor kennels with nonstop barking, today’s pampered pet accommodations are primarily indoors, so their separation from one another and from residential neighborhoods could be less than the half mile previously required without creating a public nuisance. The updated definition of a kennel was one of several zoning ordinance issues the Board addressed. At the same time, the status of Rt. 228 was officially upgraded from a rural road into a major highway – a change that carries consequences for locating certain businesses. In addition, the definition of an “event center” joined the current definition of “convention center”; a distinction which the code had not previously made. At its June 30 meeting, the Board formally adopted the ordinance changes. For more information, contact Ron Henshaw, Director, Planning & Development
