No 70-dog kennel in a residential area within the Falls Lake Watershed!

This petition had 450 supporters

This petition is a collection of signatures of those opposed to the Special Use Permit to convert the property at 11021 Six Forks Road to a 70-dog kennel.


It is our collective opinion that the proposed dog kennel at this location would adversely affect the public health, safety and welfare of the surrounding properties and the general public as well.

The proposed use of the property will have widespread negative effects on this residential area including: increased traffic on a heavily used roadway and road safety due to the location of the proposed driveways and the increase in turning movements into the proposed kennel at a difficult location on Six Forks Road.

We also believe that the proposed use will have significant negative effect on the property values of the surrounding area due to the well-known and repulsive effects of kennels on surrounding properties which generate unwanted smells and noises.

We also understand that the increase in impervious surface will increase the storm water runoff and potential for animal effluent runoff.  It is our view that the increase in runoff will have a negative effect on the stream that the runoff is being released to.  As such the increase in storm runoff will have a negative effect on the Falls Lake Watershed.

We also believe this proposal would have the effect of re-zoning without the legislative process of rezoning and that is not in harmony with the surrounding area as required by the Wake County UDO.

We disagree with the applicant of the Special Use Permit request regarding the existing commercial businesses adjacent to this property.  It is our experience that the adjacent commercial use, When Pigz Fly, adds character and a uniqueness to our area which adds value to the surrounding homes and the quality of life enjoyed by the people in the area of concern.

We also strongly refute the argument that “The proposed use of a Dog Daycare will provide a service that is currently absent from the Six Forks Road area.” Within a 5 mile radius there are already 5 establishments that offer both daytime and overnight boarding/kennel services (Armadale Farm Kennel, Six Forks Animal Hospital, Bayleaf Veterinary Animal Hospital, VCA Durant Rd Animal Hospital, and Falls Village Veterinary Hospital).

The signees confirm that they do not in any capacity support a granting of a special use permit for a dog kennel at 11021 Six Forks Rd.  Thank you for your time and consideration of our concerns, and please attend the Wake County Board of Adjustment hearing on Tues Aug 9th at 9am, 301 S. McDowell Street, Room 2700 to voice your opposition.

Note: Please do not sign this petition if you have already signed another version, whether paper or online. Thank you!
