The property: A 4.3-acre vacant parcel at the corner of Bucklin Hill Road and Ridge Lane.

It’s next door to the American Legion hall and across from Hyla Middle School.

The proposal: The project would create two buildings, each about 1,800 square feet.

One building (pictured above) would be a teaching barn to provide training for students and assistance dogs. The other building would house an instructor/caretaker and two students.

Lawns, a courtyard and parking lot are also planned. The development would be tucked in the northwest corner of the property, with access from Ridge Lane (not Bucklin).

Wenzlau Architects is designing the center. You can see more preliminary plans here.

Next steps: The proposal is in the pre-application phase. A public participation meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m., March 1 at Waterfront Park Community Center, 370 Brien Drive.
