The Fairhaven Zoning Board of Appeals, made quick work of its hearings on Tuesday, 5/3.
David Dias of 528 Bridge Street received permission for a special permit for an Animal Kennel in a residential district.
Mr. Dias, who has lived at the residence for 34 years, said he had three dogs, but wanted to get two more. More than three dogs requires a kennel permit.
ZBA chairperson Peter DeTerra explained to the board what Mr. Dias wanted and asked for a vote.
Board member Rene Fleurent asked if maybe they could get a few details, such as if there is a fence, how the large amount of waste would be disposed of, etc.
Mr. Dias said the yard was fenced in. The dogs go in and out of the house, but are confined to the fenced in area.
No neighbors were present to speak on the matter and the permit was approved.
Three rescheduled hearings by petitioner Ronald Oliveira, to build on 33 Charity Stevens Lane, 31 Charity Stevens Lane and 27 Charity Stevens Lane, were continued to the June 7 meeting at Mr. Oliveira’s request because the Conservation Commission had not made a determination. Mr. Oliveira proposes to build three homes, one on each of the properties, and needs a special permit for building in the Nasketucket River Basin.
