(KNSI) – A planned unit development agreement for a potential new animal hospital on the South Side will be debated at the St. Cloud City Council meeting on Monday.
The proposal was originally presented to the planning commission in September, but was tabled after several questions were raised by area residents. A revamped layout indicates that the establishment will be limited to opening hours between 6 a.m. and 7 p.m. on weekdays only. Small pets can be served on site and the site cannot be used as a kennel, but animals are allowed to spend the night related to treatment. Childcare facilities would be present, including an outdoor play area.
Another issue that raised questions was about the building itself and whether it would disrupt the quiet, residential nature of the surrounding community. Exterior signage has been reduced to an area of 50 square feet and exterior lighting cannot extend more than 14 feet above the ground.
The hospital would be located at 3305 Cooper Avenue South. The planning commission agreed to the new restrictions on the site at a meeting earlier this month by a 4-0 vote.
