BACKGROUND:

On May 3, 2005, the Planning Commission reviewed the request by PetsMart to be able to allow for a veterinary office and hospital use in a PD-MC, Planned Development Mixed Commercial district. The veterinary clinic would occupy up to 2,500 square feet of a 23,000 square foot PetsMart store.

 

Staff recommended no conditions. The Planning Commission, however, asked staff to provide conditions to reflect the maximum square footage for the use and the specific buildings the special use permit applies to, and to make sure no outside runs or kennels occurred.

 

Staff has developed the following conditions based on the Planning Commissions recommendation:

           

1. The veterinary services (as shown on the concept plan entitled Major Site plan Amendment for Hollymead Towncenter, Area B, Rio District, Albemarle County, Virginia prepared by Rivanna Engineering & Surveying, PLC. and dated December 6, 2004) located at Outparcel H shall be limited to not more than 2,500 square feet, and 

 

2. There shall be no outside runs or kennels.

 

 

The Planning Commission recommended approval of this Special Use Permit with the conditions as previously noted.

 

DISCUSSION:

Staff has developed conditions which have been reviewed and approved by the zoning and legal staff. 

 

RECOMMENDATIONS:

 

Staff and the Planning Commission recommend approval of the special use permit with the following  conditions:

 

1. The veterinary services (as shown on the concept plan entitled Major Siteplan Amendment for Hollymead Towncenter, Area B, Rio District, Albemarle County, Virginia prepared by Rivanna Engineering & Surveying, PLC. and dated December 6, 2004) located at Outparcel H shall be limited to not more than 2,500 square feet, and
