We successfully represented a group of abutters in Waltham before the Board of Zoning Appeals when Skipton Kennels purchased a home in a residential neighborhood and converted it into a commercial kennel for up to 150 dogs.

After many months of hearings during which we introduced historical aerial photography, tax records, residential leases for the property as an apartment house, and affidavits from past residents of the area, the Waltham Board of Zoning Appeals upheld a cease and desist order against Skipton Kennels.
