MIDDLE GROVE – Town officials in Milton unanimously approved a site plan and special use permit last week for an expansion project at the Milton Manor Pet Spa and Resort located at 612 Route 29.
According to an audio recording of the March 14 Milton Planning Board meeting posted online by Building Department Clerk Samantha Cope, the site plan specifies nearly 5,000 square feet of new space and additional parking spots at the pet grooming and lodging facility.
Milton Manor has grown steadily in popularity among pet owners since it first opened in the mid-1980s.
One resident who lives nearby questioned the current brightness of lighting, as well as the possibility for increased noise from more dogs barking after the expansion project is complete. She also expressed concerns about a decline in her property value.
The planning board reviewed rules under the state Environmental Quality Act and determined that there would be no negative impacts from the one-acre project.
