Spot On Veterinary Hospital and Hotel wants to move into the building off Post Road, but neighbors say their biggest concerns are odor and sound.
Neighbors in Fairfield say Spot On Veterinary Hospital and Hotel moving into the building would be disruptive.
The family-owned business has been running for five years in Stamford and is hoping to be a community partner in Fairfield. The dog vet is looking for a zoning amendment.
"If you look at the zoning regulations, anytime it mentions dog boarding it says, 'Shall not abut a residential neighborhood,' and there's a reason for that. There's a known reason: the smell and the noise," said XXX
Dr. Philip Putter owns Spot On Veterinary in Stamford with his wife. He says he's listening to the community concerns.
"I hired sound engineers and architects, etc. to build the facility to be as quiet as humanly possible," said Putter.
Neighbors add that zoning regulation changes would impact the entire town. Putter says he hopes to take care of the community's four-legged friends with advanced medical care and boarding.
"Our goals are to be a wonderful part of the community we have been here," said Putter.
The Planning and Zoning Commission does not expect a decision to be made Tuesday.
