Zoning approved for farm animal hospital

Russell Township council was happy to approve a zoning change bylaw to allow an animal hospital project to go ahead.

Council approved the zoning amendment bylaw during its September 21 teleconference session. The bylaw approval changes the zoning for the property at 593 Notre-Dame Street from its current Rural Residential designation to General Commercial, which will allow conversion of the existing detached building into an office for a large animal veterinary clinic.

The property itself will not be the actual site for treatment of the veterinary patients. Most of that will take place off-site at local or neighbourhood farms and other locations where large animals like horses, cows, and such are found.

Work on the building conversion will begin as soon as the property owner, Sclymana Inc., has made the arrangements.
