Hall commissioners reject rezoning for dog kennel after neighborhood blowback
Andrew Cain tells his 18-month-old Labrador, Hunter, to heel in June. Cain was hoping to start a business training Labradors for duck hunters on Ducket Mill Road, but Hall County commissioners voted down the rezoning for the project.
There will be no commercial dog kennel on Duckett Mill Road after the Hall County Board of Commissioners rejected a zoning request on Thursday. With two votes for the request and three against it, commissioners rejected plans for a Labrador training and breeding kennel in the West Hall area after a strong show of opposition among Duckett Mill residents. Andrew Cain hoped to start a commercial kennel training dogs for duck hunting, but needed to rezone his acre of land from agricultural-residential III to planned commercial development, a move given a positive recommendation by the Hall County Planning Commission on June 5.
