Council approves home business

An application was received from Robyn Koley to operate a Dog Grooming, Training and Temporary Boarding home-based business out of her residence, at 415 Fourth Street NE (legally described as Lots 4&5, Block 45, Plan M4926), located in the R2 Zone.

The following conditions were placed on the request, by city staff:

• No person other than a resident of the dwelling unit shall be engaged in the home-based business as an employee or volunteer;

• No advertisement carrying the address of the dwelling in which the home-based business occurs may be placed in any media;

• The home-based business shall not occupy more than 25 per cent  of the gross floor area of the dwelling unit;

• The face of any home-based business sign on-site must not exceed 0.092 m2 and must be placed within the inside half of the front yard setback;

• This permit is only valid for the above address and is non-transferable to another address, re-application will be required if the business moves locations;

• Applicant’s driveway shall be used for off-street parking of clients; and

• City of Weyburn Business License shall be obtained prior to operation of home-based business.

Coun. Laura Morrissette addressed a concern that the animals would cause excessive noise. The owner had stated that no more than three animals would be at the business at one time, and that there would not be much outdoor use for the dogs, as she had refurnished her basement for this business.

This was approved with no other discussion.
